For the first time, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s Education Department is offering an Educator Preview for the ASO Concerts for Young People: Next Generation Concert! The Educator Preview is a free workshop for any and all teachers (not just music) whose students are attending the Next Generation Concert. The three-hour course will help teachers to prepare their students for the concert experience with a focus on concert repertoire, content from the study guide, and music fundamentals through hands-on activities. Strategies for including Common Core/GPS standards and arts integration in lesson planning will also be explored in grade-level breakout sessions. No musical background is required to attend, so join us for a fun-filled afternoon exploring this year’s theme: The American Journey through Music!
