The education team at the Guild has been hard at work modifying our in-school programming for the current virtual landscape. This video is a short, 5-minute sample of how we will produce our education content for school partners moving forward.
Please Note: some elements are sped up in this sample video for time limits. Each individual lesson will be a full 15-minute instructional video, and custom modifications for specific student populations will be included. An accompanying worksheet (digital and .pdf) will be provided as well as a list of all National/NYS Next-Gen Standards addressed in each lesson. We are able to work with any school in all grades Pre-K - Adult. Partial subsidies to offset fees are available to schools in the New York City metropolitan area.

AMPLIFYING VOICES

The Metropolitan Opera Guild's in-school residency programs are designed to support integrated arts education within the general classroom. This means that while our Teaching Artists are there to teach students about music, singing, and writing and performing songs, etc., that we are simultaneously collaborating with classroom teachers to connect to their students' general studies. This past year at P.S. 32 in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, 4th Grade students worked with Teaching Artist Megan McCormick to study the words of world-changers. Click to watch the feature to read and listen to the lyrics and original melody created by the students.

How can we use our faces to express emotions?

Emotions with Emoji's

This short, fun lesson is designed for early childhood students to help them discover how we can use our faces to express different emotions. Met Guild Teaching Artist Shawn Farrar takes us on a fun (and SILENT!) activity.
