SongWorks in Practice (SIP)

SongWorks in Practice (SIP)

Jake Harkins presents at a SongWorks in Practice session.

SongWorks in Practice (SIP) virtual professional development sessions offer active, accessible, and engaging experiences in singing, movement, listening, and literacy study using SongWorks Practices, guided by the SongWorks Principles of Teaching and Learning. SIP sessions are hosted and led by SongWorks Certified Educators. 

These evenings were created to facilitate a way for our community to stay connected, share our work, and support and empower one another. SIP presenters and topics vary, and posted schedules are subject to change.

A SIP session is not an all-encompassing course. These sessions offer a taste of SongWorks Principles and Practices at play. More comprehensive training and experiences are offered at the SongWorks Summer Certification Courses, local workshops, and annual international SongWorks Conferences.
