Retired Teacher Supports Music in Schools: Check IPEI grant deadlines

A retired teacher has made a gift to IPEI designated for “Grants”. She wants to facilitate additional creative integration of music into elementary curricula. In 2015-16, IPEI can fund one Teacher Grant, totaling up to $1,500; and one Red and Gold Grant, up to $500, for projects that do this. Examples include students composing songs related to subject matter, use of instruments, creating instruments from found objects, and writing poetry to music.
