Music Educators Workshop

During the 2022–2023 school year, approximately 100 music educators in the New York City area will be selected to participate in a free, yearlong Music Educators Workshop that includes monthly participatory sessions (on Saturdays) with Carnegie Hall Faculty. We look forward to welcoming educators to this workshop on-site at Carnegie Hall for the year.

Participants will receive an honorarium of up to $500 upon the successful completion of the program and will have the option to register for professional credit from the New York State Education Department.

We invite K–12 educators to apply for the program and benefit from

  • engaging in monthly workshops (on Saturdays) focused on classroom pedagogy, musical creativity, and artistic leadership led by top music educators and artists
  • attending concerts as a guest of Carnegie Hall
  • networking with a peer group of New York City music teachers
  • making music across genres with your peers, leading to a culminating performance in Zankel Hall in June, 2023

To apply, you must

  • work in either a school or community setting in the New York City metropolitan area
  • work with K–12 music students
  • be able to commit to 8 out of 10 workshops in person at Carnegie Hall
  • contribute to and participate in a community of learners
  • be interested in receiving supplementary training or rejuvenating your musical and teaching practice

Please note that we are currently unable to welcome any attendees who are not fully vaccinated, including those under the age of 5. To enter the building, all Carnegie Hall visitors are required to agree to a COVID-19 Liability Waiver and show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 with a vaccine approved by the World Health Organization. This includes visitors under the age of 12, with their guardians acting on their behalf. Boosters are also highly recommended, based on eligibility determined by the CDC. While inside Carnegie Hall, all guests must wear a properly fitting mask over their nose and mouth except when eating or drinking in designated areas.
