Music Education Matters Summit


Music Education Matters Summit, hosted by Georgia 4-H, provides an experience for youth across
Georgia, and around the nation, to practice and grow in music education, network and learn from
industry professionals, and develop as a leader, team member, and performer. The summit offers youth
the opportunity to select one of five tracks:
- Vocal
- Instrumental
- Songwriting
- Dance
- Musical Theatre
Each track is designed to focus not only on skills development, but mentorship and career exploration
with industry professionals.
Additionally this year, adults will be offered an supplementary workshop to discuss the processes used to
launch, organize, and sustain a 4-H Performing Arts program. The facilitators will discuss the “nuts and
bolts” of a Performing Arts group including auditions, travel considerations, funding, rehearsals,
leadership recruitment, and marketing.
