Opera is a multidisciplinary art form. It combines music, movement, theatrics and visual artistry, making it the perfect fit for any classroom. By engaging students in new ways, opera encourages critical thinking, communication, creation and collaboration. There's something here for everyone so how do craft artists and educators use music (in any form) in their curriculum? Are we missing out on an opportunity to reach students via a medium they can relate to? Kids very much want to experience the immediate practical applications to what they are learning. It doesn't have to be Opera, any music kids relate to can (and should) be used.

Feel free to share your thoughts and insights.
