NYSSMA Best Practices Committee
What is the Best Practices Committee?
This committee is looking at the best practices of teaching music in all music classes. We will be examining distance learning, hybrid learning, as well as in-person learning.
Committee Members: If you have any best practice examples please reach out to the committee member from your Zone or any of the chairs.
WE ARE LIVE!
Check out our new website and resources.
In June of 2020, NYSSMA President David M. Brown charged this ad-hoc committee with looking at best practices being utilized in our schools in light of the Covid-19 Global Pandemic. The committee got right to work reviewing and collecting a database of lessons and resources that have been tested and vetted. We decided to present our findings in the form of a navigable website to support K-12 decision makers and music educators. We understand that this is a very fluid and constantly changing situation. The information below has been compiled to the best of our ability using current, developed practices of music educators. This resource list is ever growing, and should be considered a fluid resource. You will also see that there is opportunity for educators to submit lessons and resources as well.
