Can you imagine going through your entire K-12 career without ever encountering a teacher who looks like you? This is precisely the case for many of our young musicians of color, leading many to question whether or not they truly belong in music. Join us as we explore the beginnings of a career in music education for students of color through stories from music educators, music administrators, and music teacher trainers. Craft a plan to support and encourage your diverse student-musicians from elementary school through their first teaching job. Develop strategies for recruiting a more representative body of music teachers and enjoy the exponential impact you can have on future musicians for years to come! (This webinar is part of the Building a Legacy series.)
