MUSICOUNTS Learn Town Hall – The Back To School Conversation.
This MusiCounts Learn Town Hall will bring together educators, artists, and researchers for a conversation on why music education is essential for young people as we head back to school in another unpredictable year. The panelists will discuss how the role of music education has evolved during the pandemic, particularly in supporting the wellness needs of students. We will also explore what we’ve learned during the pandemic, and how there may be some valuable lessons to carry forward into the future.
This Town Hall conversation will remind everyone – teachers, administrators, parents, and other stakeholders – that music should play a critical role in supporting young people through their pandemic recoveries, and that now is the time to advocate for, and invest in, music education.Dr. Bina John
