Hal Leonard has announced a free Virtual Music Education Summit on July 29-30, intended to support music educators returning to the classroom in the fall. With the theme of “Looking FORWARD to 2021-2022,” this event will focus on meeting the needs of all students (and teachers) for a safe, effective and energetic return to schools after one of the most challenging years they’ve known.
This summit will bring together a lineup of experts in the field who are working collaboratively to provide sequential presentations that focus on meeting the needs of all students this fall. Topics include social emotional learning; equity, diversity and inclusion; special needs; trauma-informed pedagogy; teacher health and wellness; student safety; CDC guidelines; advocacy; and more.
“This fall, students and teachers will be returning to their classrooms after what will have been 16 months of disruptions and challenges, but also innovations and growth,” said John Mlynczak, vice president of music education & technology for Hal Leonard. “We want to provide a program that empowers and celebrates music educators while focusing on meeting the needs of all students this fall.”
This event will also feature musical performances and special guests to help celebrate music educators. Hal Leonard will continue to work closely with all presenters and guests throughout the summer to craft a meaningful and inspirational event for music educators.
Additionally, teachers will be able to earn professional development certificates for attending.
