Teachers' Institutes

Teachers’ Institutes are a strategic component of the Children’s Education Program. These professional development workshops, featuring outstanding clinicians, provide a variety of creative teaching techniques and methods to assist teachers when introducing our programs in the classroom curriculum prior to attending performances.

Performing Arts Fort Worth’s collaboration with the Fort Worth Independent School District has led to a national grant for furthering teacher training. Due to the grant, we have hosted Kodály certification courses at Bass Performance Hall at no charge for Fort Worth ISD elementary music teachers. These intensive training programs reinforce teaching methods and enable accreditation for elementary music teachers.
