Inspire Live was magical! Watch it here!

We want to thank all our sponsors, donors and participants who tuned in to experience the performances, learn more about our program and help support our next courses exploring the music of Africa! 

On September 20th, we hosted Inspire Live, a virtual launch party to celebrate our newest courses on the music of Latin America & the Caribbean. We are so proud of this addition to our Culture Series. Music is a universal language. Exposing and educating our youngest students the musical cultures and influences from around the world broadens their minds and hearts. Additionally, giving students a chance to see their own cultures positively showcased is empowering and uplifting. We are continuing our Culture Series with our next courses exploring the music of Africa. Inspire Live is raising funds to begin this new musical journey! 

Thanks to our generous donors, we came very close to hitting our goal. Currently, we are over 85% of the way to our goal, we only need $7,500 to have the course fully funded. If you, your school's PTO or student's parents feel inspired, please click (or pass along) the button to donate. Support from our donors helps bring inspirational, relevant music education to students everywhere. If you missed the show and want to check it out, please click below to see the magic happen. Music is for Everyone!

Hispanic Heritage Month
Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15th to October 15th. As you may know, we recently launched our two newest courses on the music of Latin America & the Caribbean.  We recently heard from Shawna, an Elementary Music Teacher, "I'm teaching [the Latin American & Caribbean Music courses] in celebration of Hispanic Heritage month, a unit supporting my world music curriculum. Love the modern video footage!!! Super relevant and interesting for the kiddos". We hope your students love the courses as much as Shawna's!!

Your Feedback

Your Feedback makes Music Workshop the best it can be, it is crucial to our program quality and funding. Every bit of feedback given is read (yup, every form) and your opinions are recorded. Hearing how the program functions for different teachers in different environments helps us make changes and improvements. Opinions are tracked for future revisions, also any pressing issues are addressed immediately by our team. Additionally, Music Workshop is funded entirely by generous grants and donations. We do not, and never will, charge for the program. Your feedback is also critical to our funders. One of the most amazing contributions to the program is your knowledge, opinions and expertise! Thank you!

October 12th

Indigenous Peoples Day is October 12th
Looking for a lesson for Indigenous People's Day? Music Workshop's Native American Traditional Music is a great option! Filled with the sights and sounds of the original music makers, this course was the first in our Culture Series. Full of big sounds, handmade instruments and amazing musicians, Native American Traditional Music is used in ceremonies, storytelling, healing and much more. Your students will love learning about Native American instruments and music.

Workshop Wednesday

Our Teachers have the best ideas!
We recently got a great idea from a Music Workshop teacher in her feedback form, "I cannot have my middle school choirs sing as much as they're used to due to Covid, so I have to adjust everything, and "Workshop Wednesday" has been a big hit. I love your program and appreciate you all so much for making such high quality courses."  Thank you, Julie, for such an amazing idea! Let us know how you use Music Workshop in your classes, your fellow teachers love to hear new ideas.

As we create the courses in our culture series, we strive to ensure that we represent the region and music accurately. For the Latin America & the Caribbean, we recruited an amazing group of advisers to guide us on this musical journey. Located in Portland, Boston and Argentina, our advisors include a Grammy nominee, collegiate professor, and a Grammy Music Education Coalition advisor. We are so grateful to have such a qualified, talented group of people to advise us on these courses. We are already in conversations with three ethnomusicologists to work with us on our courses on the music of Africa. Exciting times at Music Workshop!
