Dr. Karen Crocco, SLPS Instructional Specialist for Visual and Performing Arts, was selected to present a session at the Carnegie Hall Summer Music Educator Workshop in New York City. Music educators from across the country came to Carnegie Hall to expand the impact of their work with young musicians.
Dr. Crocco’s standing-room-only workshop entitled “Beginning with the End in Mind: Intention in Rehearsal and Assessment” focused on teacher learning to reinvigorate student creativity and musicianship, building a community of peers, and investing in one’s own artistry through creative activities and music-making ensembles. Participants focused on the Great Music Teaching
Frameworks: Artistry, Intention, Inquiry, Inspiration, Compassion, Expression, and Agency.
Dr. Crocco also performed “Stay on It” by Julius Eastman, with other workshop participants. “This entire opportunity provided me with a phenomenal experience professionally, musically, and personally! I am so excited to share with others in our District,” said Crocco.
