Overview

The Georgia 4-H Music Education Matters Summit provides an experience for youth across Georgia, and around the nation, to practice and grow in music education, network and learn from industry professionals, and develop as a leader, team member, and performer. In Georgia 4-H, we believe in the power of young people.

 

Who Should Attend?

Youth 6th-12th grade in the 2019 – 2020 school term are eligible to attend and will select one of five tracks to tailor their summit experience:

  1. Dance
  2. Instrumental
  3. Songwriting
  4. Vocal
  5. Musical Theatre

Each track will engage multiple instructors with different areas of expertise to help participants become better performers and to teach them about the opportunities that exist for careers in their area. Additional classes will be offered that highlighted successful collaborations among artists and music technology. Tracks are designed to focus not only on skills development, but mentorship and career exploration with industry professionals. Through a combination of workshops, presentations and informal networking time youth are able to ask questions related to their own development as a musician and their own career aspirations. In addition, youth will have the opportunity to work one on one with mentors who provide guidance on becoming a better performer, as well as discuss career opportunities in the music industry.

Coordinated by the University of Georgia, College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences, Cooperative Extension, Georgia 4-H.  Since 1981 Georgia 4-H has coordinated 4-H Clovers and Company, one of the premier 4-H performing arts groups in the county.

Make plans now to join us for the 4th Annual Music Education Matters Summit, July 14-16, 2020 at Rock Eagle 4-H Center in Eatonton, GA.

The mission of Georgia 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society. This mission is accomplished, through “hands on” learning experiences, focused on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness, leadership, communication skills, foods and nutrition, health, energy conservation, and citizenship.

Exploring and discovering, encouraging and challenging, that’s what Georgia 4-H is all about. As a program of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Cooperative Extension System, 4-H is part of the nationwide Extension network.
