American Center for Elemental Music and Movement

We have a wonderful opportunity being brought to you from the American Center for Elemental Music and Movement.

ACEMM is a non-profit charity working to bring elemental music and movement to teachers, schools and communities through support and outreach. One of the missions of ACEMM is to promote advanced work in elemental music and movement through study. The Center is proud to offer its third Beacon Scholarship for study during summer 2015. The scholarship may be used for study in an existing Orff Schulwerk Certification Course or other graduate courses, individual projects of study including music and movement, and short courses or workshops in the elemental approach.

Applications are due on May 8 and all applicants will be notified by May 31, 2015. For more information about the work of ACEMM and the Beacon Scholarship, please visit:

Music Educators Toolbox | Carnegie Hall

This set of free online resources for music teachers includes lesson plans and activities, summative and formative assessments, video examples, and documented best practices. Designed to be effective and adaptable in a wide variety of music classrooms, the resources were developed through Carnegie Hall’s five-year residency in a New York City elementary/middle school.

The Toolbox currently features grade-specific music education resources addressing fundamentals of Rhythm and Meter, Form and Design, Expressive Qualities, Pitch, and Performing.
