Posted on: November 13, 2020

Michigan’s Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra has launched an online platform of educational materials designed for music teachers, called the A²SO Teacher Resource Hub. The program currently consists of a Google Drive collection of PDF documents, presentations, and videos organized by grade level. Tyler Rand, the orchestra’s executive director, said in a press release, “We are thrilled to offer this rich array of music curriculum support to educators navigating the virtual classroom environment. As we continue to adapt to the challenges this year has presented, our education and community engagement programs remain a top priority for the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra. We look forward to continuing to deliver new and innovative ways to engage our community of music lovers of all ages.” Vera Schwankl, a music teacher at Mitchell Elementary School, said, “I really appreciate all [that the orchestra does] for our musical community in Ann Arbor. Teaching music online is a brave new world, and we’re all still figuring it out.” For more information, visit the Ann Arbor Symphony’s A²SO Teacher Resource Hub.
