Regional Common In-Service

Dear PMEA,

I wanted to let you know about "New Resources for Music Teachers", a regional common in-service opportunity for Music Educators in Erie County, organized by IU5, the Erie Philharmonic, and Erie Arts & Culture. I was hoping you might share this announcement with some of your members.

This Act 48 eligible program is designed to provide pre-K - 12 Music Educators with a collection of new resources to enhance their curriculum, improve teacher efficacy, and keep educators up to date with best practices in music education and arts integration. The program will also increase awareness of regional curricular resources (at the Erie Philharmonic and with Erie Arts & Culture). A summary and schedule is attached.
