February 21-23, 2018 Youth Academy Teacher Training program (YATT)
This mentoring program is designed for students ages 14-21 who are interested in teaching music to children. Students will participate in a Wednesday evening training program and then be given teaching assignments during the Youth Academy. They will work with experienced teachers and will also have opportunities to both teach and perform. Former participants have used this program to fulfill senior project requirements for high school graduation. Applicants will be asked to submit an essay explaining why they wish to participate, along with filling out a questionnaire describing their interests and experience. New this year! Due to the generosity of Acoustic Sound patrons and our sponsors, this mentoring program is now being offered at no cost to participants.
