Music Education Webinar: Dr. Latasha Thomas-Durrell
The Department of Music welcomes music educator Dr. Latasha Thomas-Durrell for an interactive webinar “Enacting Social Justice in the Music Classroom”.
The Adelphi University Music Education Webinar Series offers music educators exciting opportunities to engage with renowned experts in the field while exploring current topics in music education. All sessions will consist of informative presentations and moderated Q&A sessions.
Music teachers are thirsty for knowledge about how to combat systemic issues, but sometimes it is difficult to come up with ideas in order to move in a different direction than the one in which we were headed. With so many sources for information circulating, some feel overwhelmed about how to start. Other teachers feel like they have begun putting new practices into place, but would like ideas for other ways they might approach enacting social justice in the music classroom. And many teachers feel bound by their school’s covert and overt restrictive policies. This session has something for all of these teachers.
