Music IS social. Music IS emotional. Musical Social Emotional Learning (MSEL) capitalizes on the power of music education to help our students build the competencies of SELF (self-awareness & self-management), OTHERS (social-awareness & relationship management), and DECISIONS (responsible decision-making). First and foremost, MSEL must be intentionally embedded into musical instruction. It should never feel like “one more thing” or a box to check; it should simply feel like great music teaching meeting our students’ needs. Social Emotional Learning is front and center in education; Music for All and Dr. Scott Edgar are here to help make this important work relevant and MUSICAL for both you and your students!
