Curriculum Resources for Educators

Music is a powerful tool that can inspire and motivate. When integrated with other content areas like reading or science, music provides students with a way of making meaning. They are able to emotionally connect to literature, famous people and historical events, as well as scientific and mathematic processes. More importantly, they gain a greater understanding of themselves and each other.

Curriculum Resources are divided into four categories:

WHY MUSIC EDUCATION?: Research and advocacy information on the impact of music on learning.

PREPARING FOR THE CONCERT:  Resources and concert study guides for teachers to help prepare students for their Symphony experience.  

MUSIC 101: General music knowledge with links to state and national music education standards.

CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES: Lesson activities, assessment tools and technology resources related to music and music integration.
