Health and Well Being in Music Education

Supporting students, school and communities through music

The artistic processes of creating, performing, responding and connecting provide unique experiences in self-awareness and personal efficacy to musicians of all ages and abilities. Music educators are well-situated to teach skills and dispositions through music performance, leading to students becoming more competent. The course will prepare music teachers to engage more students through creative processes. Also, students will learn to guide and lead community conversations about the value and benefits of music to students, school and the community.

The course is designed and intended for all musicians: undergraduate and graduate music education and music performance majors, public and private school teachers, and applied lesson instructors.
