The Adaptive Music Partnership, a program of Community Music School of Springfield, is offering two series of workshops
focusing on music instruction for diverse learners. Both series will address an array of special needs commonly found
among music students, as well as strategies and techniques for successfully working with all students.
Series 1 is intended for music instructors who work in group settings, such as a school classroom teacher, ensemble
directors, and studio teachers who teach group classes.
Series 2 is intended for music instructors who work in 1-on-1
settings, such as instrumental and vocal teachers.
