Each strand in the summer institute is designed as a hands-on learning experience supported by direct instruction, instructor coaching, and peer review and feedback. The entire group will come together for a one-hour session each afternoon that will focus on the new National Core Music Standards. Through the assigned readings and class discussion, participants will explore their own school curriculum and projects within the Summer Institute courses. Participants will identify where music and technology applications will enhance their respective curricula for Creating, Performing, and Responding as articulated in the NCAS document.

This Music and Multimedia Technology Summer Institute is offered in collaboration with Castleton University and the Center for Schools.
