Taking Music Education Teaching Online

The way we understand Music Education in our public schools is rapidly changing. As more teachers move their lessons online, Give A Note wanted to respond and support as we know how: connecting an experienced educator to you all with a list of helpful resources to make this process a bit more manageable.
We reached out to our friend, Anne Fennell, M.Ed., the K-12 Music Program Manager for San Diego Unified School District in San Diego, CA, and 2016-2020 Chair for the NAfME Innovations Council. Here’s her list. Any additional resources you’ve found helpful, please let us know!
