To kick off each new school year, teachers of the Philharmonic's School Partnership Program (SPP) from all five boroughs gather at Lincoln Center to participate in Professional Development workshops led by New York Philharmonic Teaching Artists. Teachers and Teaching Artists work together to set goals, deepen their partnerships, and discuss strategies to engage each SPP student.
In addition, new SPP teachers are welcomed with a workshop to introduce them to the program (see photo). This year the 20 Teaching Artists are partnering with 186 teachers to serve more than 4,300 students.
