Professional Development

Practicing Musician’s Professional Development Roundtable is a team of educators across the United States collaborating with the Practicing Musician administrative team to identify the professional development needs of teachers and facilitate training in those areas. In addition, Roundtable Representatives work with national and state organizations, districts, and music educators to understand the interconnectedness of our nation’s music education system so that Practicing Musician can continue to design innovative instructional, assessment, and support tools that are simple and effective.

Our mission is to make sure every teacher has the training and tools required to speak to the specific expressive needs and aesthetic sensibilities of every student.

Your Passion, Their Success!

Practicing Musician’s first annual symposium will take place on July 22nd, 2021.
