NAFME - Guidance for General Music Teaching during COVID-19
NAfME is pleased to present Guidance for General Music Teaching during COVID-19, a new resource from the NAfME Council for General Music, to assist educators in providing standards-based instruction to students using various instructional delivery options (in-person, hybrid, virtual). This document provides examples of general music teaching using the Anchor Standards, scenarios for how general music instruction can and should continue through the pandemic, and answers to frequently asked questions. NAfME thanks Rob Lyda, council chair, and all the members of the council for their efforts to produce this important resource.
