As teachers and students return to music classrooms nationwide, Save The Music Foundation is launching a free, nationwide professional development program for music teachers - geared toward recognizing the social and emotional impacts of the pandemic on students and actively building student resilience via the music classroom.
Through a combination of in-person and web-based sessions, Save The Music has assembled the leading experts in social-emotional and trauma-informed approaches to music education, and is connecting them with the Save The Music network of thousands music educators across the country.
Starting in September, Save The Music and Center for Arts Education and Social Emotional Learning (ArtsEdSEL) will offer monthly webinars focused on Student Empowerment Through Social-Emotional Learning in Music Education. The webinars are free to attend and tailored to music educators looking to utilize their classroom to help prepare students for the tests of life. Webinars are also relevant for student musicians, parents and families, as well as music education advocates.
