Music education can teach valuable skills beyond the classroom, helping children to think both creatively and systemically. Yet a range of intersecting issues is eroding accessible opportunities for music education, which is increasingly available only to the wealthy.
In this wide-ranging talk, we’ll hear from three teachers who are fighting to keep music education alive for kids from all backgrounds, and how they are tackling challenges such as budget cuts, outcomes-based approaches, and a growing emphasis on STEM subjects. We’ll learn why they believe in the power of music education to transform students’ lives for the better – not just in the world of music, but as engaged and contributing members of society.
