2022 Summer Academy


ETM-LA welcomes music and arts educators at all career-levels to join us in expanding your skills and techniques to help you become a fresh and dynamic music teacher in the new school year.

Over five days we’ll explore culturally relevant and diverse strategies for teaching music in under-resourced communities with best practices in classroom management and procedures, assessment, immersive and inspiring learning environments, student engagement, and curriculum design. 

Our sessions will feature special presenters alongside ETM-LA’s own program team who have experience teaching students from diverse backgrounds.
