K–12 educators from across the country convene in New York City each summer to expand the impact and breadth of their work with young musicians. Two distinct one-week workshops focus on how shifts in day-to-day teaching practices can reinvigorate students’ creativity and musicianship. Music educators also invest in their own artistry through creative activities and music-making in ensembles.

We welcome educators from outside the New York City area to participate as long as they can attend all four days of the workshop.
Due to the short length and intensive structure of the program, we cannot accept registration from participants who cannot attend all four days of the workshop.
Please check back later for more information on available hotels.
A tentative list of dates, workshop topics, and guest faculty can be found on our program details page. We will keep this up to date as we confirm additional details.
Absolutely! Our hope is that we will have a mix of trained music educators who are in search of artistic rejuvenation, as well as performers and teaching artists in search of growth as educators. We encourage participation from choral educators who have found themselves teaching instrumental ensembles, as well as instrumental educators who have found themselves teaching choral ensembles. Similarly, we welcome registration from professional performers who have found second careers as teachers.
While priority will be given to new participants, we will welcome returning teachers as space allows.
