    Summer Program

    Dare To Create

    In July 2017, Carnegie Hall will host the annual Summer Music Educators Workshop for school and community music educators working with K–12 students. Over the course of four days, educators will have the opportunity to engage with expert guest faculty on a range of topics including how to embrace a culture of creativity in music classrooms, and how to use composition and improvisation to inspire your musicians. 

    There will be ample opportunities for educators to exchange best practices with peers, and play their instruments in workshops and ensembles. The summer 2017 workshop, to be held in Carnegie Hall’s Judith and Burton Resnick Education Wing, will also include tickets to the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America (NYO-USA) performance at Carnegie Hall.

    Registrations are still being accepted as space allows. Please contact musiceducatorsworkshop@carnegiehall.org for more information.
