Workshop Topics
The three days will include workshop style classes in guitar, ukulele, voice, songwriting, lesson planning for music/ELA and music/English Learners, and music leadership skills. GITC faculty members and artists will lead the workshops.

The cost for the week-end is set and listed below. No matter what, you will eat well and sleep in comfort without paying hotel prices.  See accommodations below.

We are suggesting each teacher make a tax-deductible gift to GITC of $75 for all musical and educational services provided for you from Thursday night through Sunday afternoon. Pitching in whatever you can will make this workable. Everyone’s attendance is welcome regardless of what they can contribute.

31 People Make a Green Light
We are currently planning the workshop schedule based on the number of teachers who respond as well as your musical goals and desires.

Once we make our minimum registration, we can create a calendar of specific workshops to fit the requests of those of you who have signed up. 31 is the magic number.
