This conference will focus on proven practices during the current climate to be shared by educators with educators. We are encouraging 30 min. sessions and collaborative “team-presenting” with your colleagues. Sessions will be delivered via the Zoom platform. Sessions will be considered through the lens of diversity, equity, inclusion, and access in music education for all students. Culturally responsive teaching, social and emotional awareness, creative and innovative teaching concepts and engaging delivery of instruction are among the themes we would like to see infused across all conference strands.
