“As an educator, I loved the whole experience. The pre-performance materials were very thorough and interactive. The performance itself was educational, with moments along the way to explain to students what exactly they were observing, and why certain things were significant. Most importantly, it was fun. If students are having fun, theyʼre learning.”

—Julia G., Middle school educator

“While nothing can replicate the magic that happens in person, we are grateful for the work MIM is doing to ensure students still have access to opportunities in the arts!”

—District arts administrator

“This online content will further enhance our students’ learning experience as we continue to explore musical cultures from around the world.”

—Kimberly E., Music teacher
