In addition to providing music and dance instruction to students, Third Street also offers professional development opportunities to NYC classroom teachers. Through our partnership with the NYC Department of Education, Third Street provides tailored coaching residency programs that bring teaching artists directly into classrooms to provide targeted coaching and support to early childhood teaching teams.
If you are interested in bringing a coaching residency to your school, please contact us at Partners@thirdstreetmusicschool.org.
In 2014, the NYC Department of Education launched Pre-K for All. Today, nearly 70,000 four-year-olds are enrolled in free, full-day, high-quality pre-K programs across the city. The Create series is a professional learning opportunity that provides early childhood leaders and teaching teams with strategies to incorporate dance, music, theater, and visual arts into instruction and the learning environment so that children have opportunities to explore new concepts, express themselves, and make connections across learning domains. Third Street has been an integral partner in developing the Create professional learning series and providing hands-on professional learning opportunities that excite and incite teachers to intertwine music into young children’s learning environments.
