Complete this form (not every question is required) if you're interested in the Youth Volume Think Tank and/or GROWING EQUITABLE MUSIC STUDIOS, a Course of Action for studio music teachers who believe every child can change the world.
Together, let's expand studio diversity, access and inclusion while nurturing our students as changemakers. The Youth Volume Think Tank aims to recenter social justice from the margins to the heart of music education. Each session is generating practical solutions for individual music teachers to nurture their studios with diversity, equity and inclusion ASAP. Originally known as the Suzuki Social Justice Think Tank, our first Zoom events happened in August 2020.
