Carnegie Hall: Music Educators Toolbox

New York City's Carnegie Hall is well-known as one of the world's premier music performance venues. In addition to its prestigious concerts (whose history we highlighted in the 7-07-2017 Scout Report), Carnegie Hall offers a number of educational programs through its Weill Music Institute. While most of their programs are located in New York City, music teachers anywhere can take advantage of their Music Educators Toolbox. This toolbox features dozens of "free online resources for music teachers [and] includes lesson plans and activities, summative and formative assessments, video examples, and documented best practices." Organized by grade level, the toolbox provides standards-aligned resources for K-5 students that are "[d]esigned to be effective and adaptable in a wide variety of music classrooms," beginning with concepts such as rhythmic patterns in kindergarten and addressing more advanced topics like improvisation and tempo in later grades. Lesson plans frequently include downloadable worksheets, audio files to stream or download, and videos. The educational resources in this toolbox were developed through Carnegie Hall's five-year residency in and partnership with PS/MS 161, an elementary/middle school in upper Manhattan.
