The TAP trainings have given me more concrete tool for lesson planning & ways to connect with my students. I’ve already been able to incorporate certain practices in my music production workshops with Building Beats. These trainings have also helped me clarify that i wanna work with marginalized communities and I’m in the process of applying to teach at The Lullaby Project. Finally it’s given me a community a like-minded artists & teachers which gives me hope & strength.
Most Memorable TAP Moment:
The experience in my affinity group was powerful. It made me feel connected & understood.
