PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT – FOR TEACHERS
Heather Gonzalez, John Jay High School Orchestra Director in San Antonio, TX, and Cory Zilisch, Westport Middle School in Louisville, KY and Education Directors for Mark Wood Music have planned 10 days of interactive, collaborative professional development for all orchestra directors. They will share with participants the many online and in-person strategies, activities, lessons, and projects that they use every year to help retain and grow not only their symphony orchestras, but their electric orchestras as well. Participants will be invited to collaborate with fellow participants and our education staff to create new content for this upcoming year. All materials will be shared, so teachers can walk away with a tool box of materials.
