About the Event

“Nearly every day there is a new headline sharing positive attributes and potential risks associated with Artificial Intelligence. Regardless of how we may feel about technology changing society, the reality is that AI, specifically Generative AI, is here to stay and is impacting music classrooms throughout the world. Many possibilities exist for GenAI to enhance creativity and instructional practice, and music educators must ensure that such tools are used responsibly. NAfME is committed to exploring the benefits and appropriate use of GenAI in music education.” – Scott R. Sheehan, NAfME President

Use of AI is accelerating at an unprecedented pace, with growing complexity, impacting every field and profession, and all levels and content areas of music education. Join NAfME elected leaders and members of NAfME’s AI Task Force for an interactive town hall focused on AI and music education. Meet members of the AI Task Force and learn from their insights on AI and music education, what AI is, and why it won’t replace you.  Key questions include:

  • What are some important frameworks for understanding AI during this time of unprecedented rapid change?
  • How is AI impacting you now? How are you using it?
  • What is your biggest concern about AI?
  • What questions do you have about AI and its impact on music education?
  • In your ideal scenario, what is your best hope for AI in music education?

This town hall will include a panel discussion, a short presentation on why AI won’t replace you, and a breakout room discussion opportunity facilitated by AI Task Force members. Breakout discussion sessions will focus on AI and music education for different levels, including higher education (and administration), collegiate, secondary school, and elementary school.

NAfME wants to hear from you about AI in music education! In what ways are you using AI, or thinking about using it? What questions do you have about AI and music education? Share your input.

Access NAfME blogs, articles, and other resources to support educator use of AI, and the latest information on trends in AI in public policy on NAfME’s website.
