Jazz Appreciation Month

April is Jazz Appreciation Month – you may notice our Jazz course is now “Under Construction”. Darn! In taking a critical eye to our courses, we determined that Jazz needed some updates that couldn’t wait. We are expecting that the course will be ready for release in mid-April. Please contact us if you need access to the resources before then – we are happy to make arrangements. Thank you!

Music Workshop for Blended Learning

We have launched a newly upgraded platform with equal access and additional resources for both classroom and distance learning. Our changes are, as always, to enhance and improve your experience with our program and to support your students to receiving relevant and inspirational music education. We have added new materials and reviewed and revised our existing materials. All of our materials have been updated, so please make sure you access the most recent and improved versions by logging on today.

Blended Learning with Music Workshop

Before the pandemic upended our world, Music Workshop was design and intended for use in the classroom. In response to COVID-19, we swiftly modified, simplified and streamlined our platform to accommodate distance learning. Now, we’re combining the best of both worlds with the online platform and virtual learning center. At the end of July, we will be launching a newly upgraded platform with equal access to Music Workshop resources for both classroom and distance learning. The 2020-21 school year is guaranteed to be “interesting” – to be putting it lightly. Teachers, students and parents are dealing with the stress of unknown school structures and changing educational situations. Music Workshop is here to provide relevant, inspiration resources for use with classroom, remote or blended learning.
