Teaching Through Music

education video link

The Keeping Score Education program was developed in conjunction with other Keeping Score media in order to extend the benefits of the project into today’s classrooms.  The program offered teachers at all levels opportunities to learn about classical music and its connections to the core curriculum, and resources and lesson plans to help teachers integrate music into their classrooms. 

On this page you will find resources and lessons developed by Keeping Score teachers from school districts in Fresno, San Francisco, Santa Clara, and Sonoma Counties in California; in Flagstaff, Arizona; and the Oklahoma A+ Schools.  We welcome you to explore all the ways in which the unique qualities of classical music—its ability to express the grandest ideas as well as the most subtle emotions—can enhance student learning throughout the curriculum.
