by PRP Group, on 02/02/2024
Snow & Co, along with its partner, Muzzy Lane, is excited to announce that they have received one of five grants from the Library of Congress’s Lewis-Houghton Civics and Democracy Initiative to create the Music of US™ project.
This initiative supports the creation of resources for secondary school teachers and students to explore history, civics, and democracy through creative arts, especially music, using resources from the rich Library of Congress digital archives.
Bert Snow, Snow & Co Principal, said, “Music of US will provide tools to make the exploration of musical primary sources on screens available to secondary school educators and students across the country, and we will also create and pilot ‘episodes’ built with our new tools with secondary teachers and students this spring.”
The tools and episodes will enable learners to explore the music itself, and to make connections to the societal and historical contexts, movements, and personal histories that connect music with our democracy, civic principles, and life as a diverse nation.
