Southeast Regional Practicum: January 18-19, 2024


The Southeast Regional Practicum is designed to convene Teaching Artists from El Sistema-inspired and community music programs across the Southeast, including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Over two full days in-person, participants gain new skills and tools that directly support the continued growth of their teaching practice as they hear from expert clinicians, reflect together through collaborative conversations, observe teaching artistry in real-time, and build a network of peer Teaching Artists. 

We look forward to meeting you January 18-19, 2024 at the Southeast Regional Practicum in Miami, FL hosted by Miami Music Project.

CORE FOCUS: Culturally Responsive Teaching

This Regional Practicum centers students’ experiences and funds of knowledge in the classroom, viewing the student and their community as assets in the learning process. 

Culturally Responsive Teaching can be infused into all areas of our teaching practice to create classroom environments that incorporate student voice and affirm the lived experiences of all students. Participants will explore how to connect learning experiences to the cultural references and backgrounds of students.

additional lens: social emotional learning

Social-Emotional Learning explores the ways that students can gain and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that contribute to developing healthy identities, managing and regulating emotions, building supportive relationships through connection, displaying empathy for others, and making caring and responsible decisions. Participants will explore how to create learning spaces and experiences that center authentic relationships, trust, and student-centered collaboration.

The Southeast Regional Practicum will primarily be based in the Overtown and Little Havana neighborhoods of Miami. Public transportation is available, but participants should plan accordingly for extra travel time. Paid, public parking is available near where Practicum activities will be held.

The 2022 Midwest Regional Practicum "was the perfect balance between breadth and depth. I really enjoyed being challenged to step outside of the daily work and to think deeply and consider new perspectives. It is truly amazing to talk to other teaching artists, see their work, feel inspired, motivated, and renewed."
