My People Tell Stories, LLC is offering an intensive week-long professional development workshop designed to help eradicate systemic racism in the field of music by getting teachers and artists to think consciously about their approaches to teaching and performing music. We teach from a Caribbean perspective and offer strategies for teaching musical traditions that have been marginalized in a system that privileges Western art music and Eurocentric pedagogical methods.

Our workshop offerings include:

·      Vocal + Rhythmic Pedagogy

·      Dance Training

·      Caribbean History

·      Teaching Resources + Strategies

·      Constructive Allyship Methods

·      Workshops with Guest Artists

·      Certificate of Completion

Registration for the New York workshop (July 9, 2018—July 13, 2018) is now open. Workshops will take place at the LuEsther T. Mertz South Oxford Space. The building is conveniently located in Downtown Brooklyn near the Atlantic Avenue—Barclays Center Terminal. Early registration ends on March 15, 2018. Registration continues until July 1, 2018 on a space available basis. Early registration is encouraged, as space is limited. For more information regarding this workshop (including tuition, fees, scholarships, and deadlines) see the attached brochure and visit our website.
