On Monday, Jan. 4, the Musical Instrument Museum will launch four standards-based video collections for Spring 2021, including three virtual field trips and one virtual Artist Residency.
The field trips video collection guides K-12 students as they explore geography, discover MIM’s galleries, and create their own music. Each collection includes five to seven tour videos with related content, an educator guide, and a student activity sheet.
The virtual Artist Residency Program provides students opportunities to learn about music firsthand through a prerecorded, interactive performance. The spring resident artist is Phoenix-based rapper Mega Ran. As an option, students can attend a live Q&A session with the artist via Zoom on selected dates.
Cost per video collection for one semester: $2 per student, $200 per school or $1,000 per district; free access may be available to students from Title 1 schools and programs.
