Teaching Music Online (US timezone)

About the course

Teaching Music Online is an intensive, three-week course for classroom teachers, ensemble directors and peripatetic teachers who have moved their teaching online as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The best way to learn something is to experience it yourself! You’ll learn what you can and can’t do, the best tools to use to create and deliver your lessons and collaborate with other teachers to design and create curricular units and lesson plans that actually work online.

You’ll learn about the possibilities and limitations, how to choose the right technology, and how to successfully implement online lessons. Live class meetings will include discussion of assigned topics and support for project design.
