For over 20 years John Bertles has taught master classes at institutions such as The Juilliard School, Curtis Institute of Music and Lehman College. For Manhattan School of Music he is in his 22nd year of presenting three master classes a year for graduate students in orchestra, jazz and opera outreach studies. Bertles always combines the experience of someone who has been around the arts education field for decades, with the freshness of someone who is still working and performing in schools and other venues throughout the year.
ARTS IN EDUCATION AS PART OF YOUR CAREER
Arts Education is a fantastic resource for budding artists. For some it can be a pathway to a wonderful career; to others it can be a welcome source of side income. In this master class intended for students of all art forms we’ll explore the different forms of Arts Engagement in the schools and consider the incredible benefits of teaching others about your art.
This is a master class for arts educators that explores a retrograde design model for lesson plans and larger curricular units. Designing the unit “backwards” - starting from the desired result - can make it easier for teachers to create units that have a direct and reachable goal related directly to standards, as well as seamlessly integrating both formative and summative assessment exercises - including benchmarks.
