Informance: A Hands-on Experience from Inside the Music Ensemble

Join us for a unique and interactive experience from inside a music ensemble. Upswell participants will sit side-by-side with students in an active band rehearsal; observing and discussing the process of learning involving discipline, practice and risk-taking, and how it all relates to goals for student success and preparation for college and career-readiness. Beyond the intrinsic value of music to cultures worldwide, an education that includes music has benefits that transcend the musical domain. Presented by The NAMM Foundation and facilitated by Dr. Merryl Goldberg.
