The Sheldon Arts Foundation is pleased to be able to offer free professional development for educators. This workshop will discuss how to use contemporary music examples to teach general music, music history and music theory in the classroom. At this workshop, you
will have a blast learning to teach these concepts to your students and, in the classroom, your students will enjoy connecting with music they already know and love.
