Coinciding with the National Take a Stand Festival, the 2018 Take a Stand Symposium will bring together teachers from around the world with a vested interest in the El Sistema movement and progressive methods of music education.

The Take a Stand Symposium will offer a variety of skills-based workshops and panels that support excellent teaching and learning techniques, connect teachers with both peers and experts, and strengthen practice.

Registration is open to any teacher who is either directly inspired by El Sistema or clearly demonstrates a dedication to social change and youth development through instrumental music education.

Applications will be accepted beginning March 15, 2018.
