Event Description:

You and I are incorporating some level of social emotional learning (SEL) in our teaching whether we know it or not, so let’s be intentional. Explore experiences that contribute to developing both social emotional skills and stronger musicians—student musicians who recognize emotions, appreciate diverse perspectives, set goals, and solve challenges. Bonus! Examine the new book The ABCs of My Feelings and Music with a crowd sourced expansion of ideas by Minnesota teachers. Take away practical strategies you can use next week.
