Our 2019 theme, “Amplify the Future of Music: Opening Doors for All Students,” features the following content strands:
How do we create a learning environment which supports student voice, creativity, collaboration, and choice – whether via composition, improvisation, in current ensembles, or other pathways for creative musical endeavors?
Amplify: Student Engagement
How do we engage all students daily within our classrooms and throughout our school as they create, perform, respond, and connect to music?
How do we expand instructional practices to support student ownership, voice, choice, and assessment in a standards-based, high-quality music education?
How do we guarantee and expand access to music education for every student in our school sites and classrooms, which could involve parents, administration, and other outside connections?
How do we successfully create a musical community within in our schools and/or beyond the school walls in urban, rural, or suburban settings?
Amplify Inspiration Showcase
In addition to the Amplify themes, there will be a showcase of research and quality classroom practice in an informal, “poster session” format. With 3 feet of table, what can you share with your colleagues? Bring your ideas to inspire others!
