The Teaching Artist

The term teaching artist first appeared in the 1970s through the work at the Lincoln Center Institute and it's arts education programs.

Today teaching artist has become the term to describe the wide range of activities for those individuals who both practice their art form and engage in teaching others the knowledge and processes they employ as artists.

A teaching artist (artist-educator) is a practicing professional artist with the complementary skills and sensibilities of an educator, who engages people in learning experiences in, through or about the arts. Teaching Artists work with schools, after school programs, community agencies, institutions and social service agencies. A teaching artist, by definition, is a two-career professional: a working artist and a working educator.

As a working artist, he is involved in an ongoing process of discovery, problem solving, discipline and refinement.

As a working educator, the artist is also developing a knowledge base and skills to be an effective partner in education.

The larger the framework of meaning an artist brings to such work, the more powerful and exciting the work will be.

As a teaching artist (and artist-in-residence) my primary concern is to bring to school students the best Classical Music has to offer.
