NEW This year we are adding an advanced track for teachers who have taken the level one class, but would like to learn and experience more. It will offer teachers the opportunity to develop a more in-depth understanding of music listening and the positive effects it has on student’s learning and lives. They will learn more advanced pedagogy of teaching music listening and have access to and receive many more listening resources for their students and themselves.
One graduate credit is available for this two-day course for an additional fee of $220. Credit information will be available at the workshop and is also available in the Graduate Credit section below.
