About Musical Explorers
Originally designed by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI) as a music education program that provides historical, cultural and geographical knowledge about the various communities of New York’s five boroughs, SMF’s Musical Explorers was adapted in partnership with WMI to apply similar lessons and learning practices to the Georgia coast and South Carolina Lowcountry.
In advance of each semester, trainings for local teachers are provided to give an overview of the curriculum, introducing vocal warm-up exercises, musical vocabulary and a variety of other basic musical concepts.
A 100-page teacher guide with accompanying student guides (including Georgia and South Carolina Standards/Common Core Capacities), videos and audio samples is distributed to each participating classroom annually, along with a complete web-based version for homeschoolers, parents and teachers using computers and interactive whiteboards.
