"The path to diversifying your music studio and repertoire starts with the teacher. It is an inside job. Diversity From The Inside Out sheds light on beliefs, habits, and thinking patterns that could be preventing you as the music teacher from having a culturally eclectic studio. By the end of this workshop, you will have the awareness, language, and tools necessary to equip you to make real change" Sign up soon, there are only 20 spots available!
