Professional Development Workshop:
We strongly encourage all Link Up Teachers to attend our PD Workshop on October 12th, 2019 from 10 a.m to 1 p.m at University Park Creative Arts School (2400 Hildebrand St. Charlotte, NC 28216). This workshop will be led by Crystal Briley, Link Up Teaching Artist and CMS Music Teacher. At the workshop you will delve into The Orchestra Rocks theme by discussing the repertoire, how to teach the curriculum, Carnegie's wealth of online resources, and what to expect on concert day. All participating teachers will receive a certificate of completion that can be used towards CEU credits.

Materials and Going Green:
In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint and save on the amount of paper expended, Carnegie encourages teachers to utilize the digital versions of both the Student and Teachers Guide. They do however understand the value of printed materials and that this transition to digital-only is not always easy. This year Carnegie is offering each Link Up teacher a classroom set of 40 student books and 1 teacher guide.
