Although often viewed by music educators as other music, often with less merit, popular music offers educators abundant teaching and learning opportunities that bridge the gap between life within and life outside our classroom walls. With that in mind, this two-day workshop has been designed to explore popular music in ways that allow educators to enhance teaching and learning in diverse educational settings.
Date: August 2-3, 2017 – 9:00 am to 4:30 pm each day
Location: Wisconsin Center for Music Education
