Description: Shand describes an exciting and innovative approach to school music workshops. In two workshops, professional musicians came into school classrooms and not only performed, but performed with students, coached student groups, held Q and A sessions, and actively demonstrated that professional musicians are human beings. This kind of hands-on interaction is invaluable to student performers. It gives them a sense of real-world music making and helps them relate to adult role models and mentors while giving them musical mentorship as well. Much more can be learned from playing with a professional group than from watching and listening to the group rehearse or perform. Shand also goes into some detail about funding opportunities that can be investigated to make such efforts financially feasible, and explains that such investment in music education has long-term implications – students who have this experience may return as professional performers and teachers in the next generation of arts education.
