As we continue to transform our music classrooms and rethink what's possible in order for all students to not only have equitable access, but thrive in our music education spaces, attention to our performance oriented classrooms must be made.


In this webinar, I will share practical applications of my framework for Culturally Responsive Music Education specifically for the performance oriented classrooms at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. 


We will explore:

  • Attending to one's mindset in order to reduce and remove obstacles and barriers to student participation in ensemble programs
  • Practical strategies for developing a supportive learning environment that promotes belonging
  • Strategies for ensuring diversity and balance in concert programs; and
  • A variety of programming structures that center young musicians in the concert programming process


This webinar will be full of information to help you implement a culturally responsive and relevant music ensemble program; you won't want to miss it! The webinar will be recorded and available to all registered participants.


Webinar is free to attend, donations accepted! *2 Registration types: "Pay what you wish" or "Free"
