CENTER FOR EDUCATIONAL PARTNERSHIPS IN MUSIC
Dr. Patrick K. Freer is Director of the The Center for Educational Partnerships, with assistance from music education faculty members Dr. Michelle Mercier-DeShon, Program Coordinator, and Dr. Martin Norgaard.
The center is increasingly recognized as a conduit for artistic excellence and innovation in urban music education.
Dr. David Myers developed the Sound Learning program in 1999. The Sound Learning model is a music residency program that reaches elementary school students in 1st through 5th grades, with a focus on interdisciplinary learning through music. The program is part of a collaborative partnership with the Center for Educational Partnership in Music, Georgia State School of Music faculty and students, Atlanta-area schools and local professional musicians. For more information, contact Dr. Michelle Mercier-De Shon.
