Summer Teacher Training Programs & Workshops


Registration is open and we are planning on running all programs at this point.
In the event of program cancellation due to COVID-19, a full refund will be issued.

In conjunction with George Mason University, Mason Community Arts Academy offers a variety of teacher training programs for music educators during the summer. Many offer college credit and Certification options, and most can be used for re-certification points (please check with your local district to be sure).

Music Teacher Training in Orff-Schulwerk and Kodály are available in July. Teachers can become certified in either of these methods by completing the Level 1 – 3 courses offered each summer. One week of Supplemental courses is also offered. Click below for all options.
