Frequently Asked Questions
What is required of me to teach Musical Explorers?
To teach the curriculum, register for Musical Explorers and then select at least one program to teach during the school year. Then watch the professional development workshop videos associated with the selected programs. Teach the program materials with your students, and host a digital concert experience in your school at the culmination of the program.
Do I need to register?
We strongly encourage all teachers who plan to teach a full program to register in order to join our network of teachers and receive regular updates, information, and additional resources, and to gain access to Carnegie Hall staff. At the same time, the resources are open to everyone, and you are welcome to try out any part of the curriculum before registering for the full program.
How do I start teaching the program?
First select the program which you would like to teach. Then, watch the professional development videos associated with each artist and genre to familiarize yourself with the materials. Once you have done that, you can teach the program to your students.
How many programs can I teach?
You can teach as many programs as you’d like in a given school year. We recommend a maximum of two if you only see your students once a week, since each unit contains many different activities.
Is there an order that I must follow?
There is no order in which you need to complete the programs—choose whichever program resonates with you! Within each program you can start with whichever genre or artist that you would like.
How long does it take?
You can dedicate as much time as you would like to teach the program, depending how deeply you want to dive into the curriculum; how often you see your students; and how Musical Explorers fits into your larger teaching plan.
