Reply To: Community-School Connections


Hi Vicki! Thank you for bringing this up. I, too, am interested in ways to connect my students with the outside community. I also find it difficult to define what the community is. Is it the town my students live in (not much live music happens there)? Is it the greater Philadelphia area? Is it a question of regional style? I like that you bring up the fact that many school music programs look and sound the same despite location. How did you try to connect your students with the diverse styles you encountered?
