Summer Strings Educator Conference

Nat King Cole Generation Hope invites you to view and share the resources below which were generated by our virtual educators conference in July 2020. The conference was created to address the challenges educators will face in the coming months due to COVID-19.

We thank all of the presenters and staff below for their efforts to provide a conference with timely information and resources; as well as the over 500 registered educators who joined us as we embarked on our adventure to provide access to quality music education for our next generation.

Thank you all for Keeping Music Alive!
