Connection and Relevance

We are always striving to connect to Music Workshop students through relevant content in our resources. We hear often from teachers that students enjoy clips and examples included in the program that reflect themselves and their lives. We work hard to make these connections and hearing from you is a great metric of how the program resonates with students. Our commitment remains to keep trying, acknowledge when we can do better and commit to try harder.
You help us make the program the best it can be!
