Teaching Music: From Classrooms to Homes is a platform for our music educators to share brief narratives about the innovative ways we are teaching music online during the COVID-19 pandemic. These stories can be about everything from creative ways you are using online technology to how music is helping support the social and emotional needs of your students. Student testimonials about missing live music making experiences in school are also important to share. We will share these stories via social media and also use them in our advocacy work at the North Carolina General Assembly this spring. The NC Legislative Session opens on April 28.
