Musical Explorers Resources

New York City 2019–2020

Welcome to Musical Explorers! This curriculum is designed to connect students in grades K–2 to New York City’s rich and diverse musical community as they build fundamental music skills through listening, singing, and moving to songs from all over the world. During the next year, you and your students will meet six New York City–based artists who each represent a different musical genre and cultural tradition; many have reinvented these deeply rooted traditions to make them their own. Together, you will learn songs and dances that you will perform along with the artists during the culminating interactive concerts at the end of each semester.
