What people say about Musical Futures PD:

I loved exploring the hands-on approach to music education and the introduction to some technologies I wasn't aware of.T hank you! The resources are fantastic. It was a really fun day :)

Emily Flanagan


It was fantastic for me to be in a room of almost 50 people, all excited about the idea of teaching music through doing, and giving students greater voice and choice in their learning to foster a love for music. The entire approach to presenting and interacting with the content of the conference fit perfectly with the idea of learning through doing, and a lifelong love for learning music.

I had a great time! Looking forward to the next one. Interacting with other teachers and playing together. Also learning what strategies others are using successfully.
