About this Program
As Miami’s only El Sistema-modeled orchestra program, Miami Music Project has achieved national prominence as one of the largest programs of its kind. Among most notable achievements is the program’s enegagement of Teaching Artists; professional musicians and educators who call Miami home.
Noted arts educator Eric Booth has defined a Teaching Artist (artist educator) as “a practicing professional artist with the complementary skills, curiosities and sensibilities of an educator, who can effectively engage a wide range of people in learning experiences in, through, and about the arts.”
The overarching goal of the Teaching Artist Training Program is to create and provide comprehensive and meaningful training experiences and practical tools that serve to empower professional musicians to become 21st century teaching artists, thereby creating a thriving culture of teaching artists in South Florida. This is accomplished by bringing leading facilitators to provide hands-on workshops designed to increase teaching abilities, leadership skills and maintain the highest level of professionalism in the classroom.
