The Art Of Facilitation: Navigating Race, Culture And Difference In The Music Classroom

The importance of having conversations around race, culture and difference in the music classroom is heightened. In order to ensure productive dialogue regarding these concepts, educators must build the necessary skills to meet the demand for an inclusive and equity-minded curricular approach. Through small and large group discussion, live facilitation practice and utilization of classroom-based scenarios, participants will leave this session able to: 1. articulate the key concepts of effective facilitation; 2. identify instructional components accessible to racial and cultural engagement; and 3. employ high-impact questions to drive integrated and relevant conversation in the music classroom. These outcomes are sure to strengthen community, build empathy in musicians and improve connection to concert literature.
