PODCASTand INTERVIEWS

In this episode, Eric and Justin get to sit with special guest Coty Raven Morris and discuss how the virtual classroom may be the new normal, but it should be starkly different in approach. We dive deep into the nuances that can make online learning just as toxic as the classroom if we are unwilling to push in a different direction for the betterment of our kids. Tune, and hopefully, you'll get inspired to keep pushing along in an effective and developing way that benefits all! To listen to more episodes of The Score podcast, CLICK HERE

EPISODE 42: Music in School

Posted by Howard Blumenthal on April 28, 2021 at 8:13pm

Continuing our series about subjects taught to K-12 students in school, we ask questions about why and how music is taught to children and teenagers. Given the wide range of contemporary thinking about individual identity, heritage, and global citizenship, our conversation covers more than the usual U.S. curriculum. Our guests include Steve Wilder Blumenthal, a composer working in television, film, commercials, and videogames (Steve also composed the music for Reinventing School); high school teacher and Marching Band Director Scott Slutter in Pennsylvania (who taught Steve Blumenthal, and inspired him to pursue a career in music); Alice Tsui, Founding Music Teacher and Arts Coordinator at PS 532 New Bridges Elementary, an arts-integrated public elementary school in Crown Heights, Brooklyn; Coty Raven Morris, Director of Choirs at Crosby High School in the Houston area, and Brandi Waller-Pace, Founder and Executive Director of Decolonizing the Music Room.
