MIMA Music 2019 Teacher Training

Jan 26-27 @ Music Resource Center

Participants of the upcoming workshop will experience the MIMA Method and learn the basic principles of delivering the Method in MIMA classrooms. As such, the workshop is primarily intended for those interested in working as paid MIMA Teaching Artists. It may also be of interest to educators in the arts looking to expand their pedagogical repertoire and musicians interested in learning new approaches to collaborative songwriting. For everyone, we promise an engaging musical experience and the opportunity to meet like-minded creative folks.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A group of artists in Charlottesville collaborated to create melodies and become certified teachers. MIMA Music held a workshop this weekend to train its next group of teachers, who are looking to teach kids and adults in the Central Virginia area.


As MIMA enters our 18th year of programming, we’re fortunate to be making Charlottesville our new home of operations (although we’ll continue our programming in New York!).

And we’re all the more fortunate to have received a generous grant from the Stranahan Foundation to expand our longstanding mission to engage and enrich communities through music improvisation and COLLABORATIVE songwriting programs. to ensure ongoing foundation support, help us “meet our match” !
