Keeping Score Education Program
Keeping Score - Interactive
Keeping Score Education offers teachers at all levels opportunities to learn about classical music and its connections to the core curriculum, and resources and lesson plans to help teachers integrate music into their classrooms. The unique qualities of classical music—its ability to express the grandest ideas as well as the most subtle emotions—offer teachers a powerful tool with which to enhance student learning throughout the curriculum.
Keeping Score provides innovative, thought-provoking classical music content on PBS television, the radio, the web, and through an education program, a national model for classroom arts integration for K-12 teachers.
