Two music specialists from arts-based schools demonstrate different approaches to serving diverse student populations:

  • Harmony Leland Elementary School in Mableton, Georgia, has purchased violins for all of its 485 prekindergarten to fifth-grade students. The school provides violin lessons for every child as part of the curriculum. In the absence of applicable standards for a project of this size and scope, string specialist Barrett Jackson developed her own teaching goals for each class, including those for the kindergartners and fifth-graders featured in this program.

  • At Smith Renaissance School of the Arts in Denver, Colorado, music teacher Sylvia Bookhardt uses the experience of learning and performing choral music to launch investigations into other topics, such as Renaissance life.
