Introduction To Music Blueprint Professional development
The Office of the Arts and Special Projects provides citywide professional development in the implementation of the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts. Professional development sessions are led by master teachers—outstanding public school arts teachers identified by the DOE—and teaching artists—professional artists from local cultural organizations. During these sessions, teachers explore the five Blueprint strands of arts education, and learn strategies for lesson plan building and engaging children in the arts. Teachers participate in hands-on projects, allowing them to directly apply the lessons learned at training sessions to their classrooms.

Non-DOE Summer PD Opportunity for Music Teachers

CHORAL CONDUCTING INSTITUTE

The Choral Conducting Institute was established in 2014 at Columbia University and at the University of Buffalo to provide choral conductors with an opportunity for growth. The institute offers 5-day workshops sponsored by the music departments at Columbia University and The University at Buffalo.

The five-day workshops are open to choral conductors from around the world who wish to enhance their careers, expand their contacts and have an intensive experience with Dr. Harold Rosenbaum, one of the world’s leading choral conductors.

The workshops are limited to 12 conductors so that each participant will receive close attention and hands-on guidance. Each attendee will receive a private lesson, plus opportunities to rehearse the institute’s choir while receiving constructive feedback by Rosenbaum. In addition, there will be sessions devoted to the study of scores and interpretation, diction and performance practice, plus the business of running a choral organization, including forming a board of directors, fundraising, marketing, public relations and grant-writing.

Other topics may include when to use a baton, when to conduct recitatives, how to run rehearsals from the keyboard, singing expressively, working with soloists, how to interpret staccatos, tenutos, choral crescendos, grace notes and glissandos, the placement of singers and piano in performance, and much more. Participants receive in-depth interaction with the maestro as they learn the intricacies of choral conducting. Auditors pay a reduced tuition and are welcome to attend any events during the week. Singers who wish to participate in the Institute Choir pay no tuition.
