This series will help music educators better understand how to elevate the lived experience, voices, and cultural assets of their students through the development of exemplary music education practices and approaches, designed to activate the SEL competencies of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making through the artistic processes of create, perform, respond, and connect.
The webinars are free to attend and tailored for music educators but are also relevant for student musicians, parents and families, as well as music education advocates. All those interested in social emotional learning in music education are welcome to join.
