Join K–12 music educators from across the country in New York City to expand the impact of your work with young musicians.

Dare to Explore: Opening Your Classroom to the World

Workshop Overview

How can you integrate music from multiple cultures into your music classroom and curriculum? This session is inspired by Carnegie Hall’s Musical Explorers, a robust, fully digital curriculum offered at no cost to teachers across the country.
