Tune into the future of music education
Join us on December 18-19 at The InspirED Music Expo, a two-day virtual conference focused on the future of music education.
This event is going to be full of compelling, thought-provoking sessions by some of the best leaders in music education across three tracks: Innovation, Connectivity, and Empowerment.
Not to mention the community discussion rooms where you can actively engage in the conversation and help to shape a bright future.
Track 1: Innovation
This track is for educators looking to innovate instruction in private lessons, small group instruction, and full-sized classes. New instructional practices, or new variations on old techniques, all scaled for music educators regardless of group size.
Track 2: Connectivity
Connectivity is the best thing to come out of technology. Learn new ways to connect with your students, parents and colleagues by implementing technology into your curriculum, music-making and communications.
Track 3: Empowerment
Get the tools you need to empower learners and yourself on another level. From the Social Emotional Learning curriculum to Trauma-Informed teaching you can effectively teach any student no matter the obstacle. This track also includes sessions meant for YOU. Learn ways that you can set boundaries, stay organised, and take a breath!
