SING, PLAY, LEARN! WITH MACPHAIL® PARTNERSHIPS
MacPhail has created partnerships with the Community Learning Center, Woodson Kindergarten Center and Apple Lane Child Care Center, integrating music learning into existing programs.
“We are thrilled to partner with MacPhail in bringing access to excellent music learning to all our children. They have extensive experience with early childhood music and countless studies have shown that participation in music builds school readiness skills in Pre-K children from all backgrounds,” said Amy Baskin, director, Community Learning Center.
AUSTIN PUBLIC SCHOOLS PARTNERSHIP
MacPhail Center for Music is beginning its work in partnership with key education leaders in Austin. MacPhail is working with the Austin Public Schools to provide custom clinics and workshops for choir, band and orchestra classes.
“The music partnership with MacPhail is going to provide additional resources for our district’s music educators to further develop their high-caliber music programs. In addition, it will help students in our district develop their music skills and use music to strengthen their general academic skills,” said David Krenz, superintendent of schools, Austin Public Schools.
MacPhail will also provide ongoing support to Austin’s band, orchestra and choir programs through our Online School Partnerships and through local MacPhail teachers.
