Review for Music In Schools Today, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

MUST programs, designed for tough times, are extremely cost-effective, as we constantly weight cost-of-service against impact. We emphasize teacher training as well as providing teaching artists, and we avoid “break-out” classes, which can be more easily cut than programs that are integrated into the school curriculum.

We teach teachers how to integrate music into all subjects through basic musical concepts like rhythm and melody, and how to use simple rhythm instruments. Then we help them to make the connections between music and other curricula. For instance, we teach children songs about ecology, to observe in a garden setting and to set their observations to music.

Role:  Board Member & I helped design, implement and evaluate programs.
