Teach music like the world depends on it!

Culturally responsive teaching is not just a concept taught at Longy—it is the philosophical current that runs through our music teacher education programs. Longy trains teachers who give students the tools to take ownership of their learning in any setting: public school, private school, preK-12, higher education, private studio, or anywhere you could teach music. And because students recognize authentic empowerment, culturally responsive teaching is present in everything we do.
