Privilege and Music Education: What Can a Music Educator Do?

Saturday, January 29, 2022
10:00 AM - 10:45 AM

Description

This hands-on workshop will give music educators an opportunity to think about privilege across multiple identity sites including gender, race, class, sexual orientation, and disability. We will consider how privilege and lack of privilege affects students in our classrooms and we will collectively discuss how privilege can intersect with music education. The final component of this workshop invites participants to create ways to address issues of privilege in the music classroom at all levels.
