Congratulations to our AM Founder for being spotlighted as one of the 10 Teaching Artists selected by the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts and Generation Next. The goal of this residency program is to train teaching artists, in the Kennedy Center’s philosophy of Arts Integration.

Arts Integration blends the power of arts into a non-arts curriculum, fostering an exciting learning environment and teaching students to develop their unique expression of knowledge with their own individual resources.

We know he’s looking forward to sharing his residency program with school districts, K-12 educators, and organizations who seek to integrate arts into their non-arts curriculum.

What Happens in the Brain When People Make Music Together? - Neuroscience News 08/24/2021

What Happens in the Brain When People Make Music Together? - Neuroscience News

A new study reveals what goes on in the brain when a person embarks on a musical collaboration project!

"A team of social neuroscientists introduced a model of the brain that sheds light on the social functions and brain mechanisms that underlie the musical adaptations used for human connection. The model is unique because it focuses on what happens in the brain when people make music together, rather than when they listen to music individually.

The research was inspired by creative efforts of people around the world to reproduce music-making together while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. This included people singing songs in unison from balcony to balcony, group singing on video conferencing platforms such as Zoom, and live living room concerts by the likes of Yo Yo Ma, Chris Martin from Coldplay, and Norah Jones."

The First 100 Videos Played On MTV

"Ladies and gentlemen, rock 'n' roll."

Aug. 1, 1981, at 12:01 am, MTV went on air for the very first time with an image of an astronaut, modeled after Neil Armstrong, and an MTV flag planted on the moon. They changed music and pop culture forever.

Today on their 40th anniversary, learn more about that day and YES, you can watch the first 100 music videos played on MTV.

The First 100 Videos Played On MTV Comparing the station to the moon landing may have come off as hubristic at the time, but MTV would go on to change pop music and its impact on popular culture.
