The PCC summer music literacy workshop with Dr. Carol Krueger has been so influential on empowering my students with the tools they need to become stronger musicians. By utilizing Carol's teachings, I have seen my students develop a deeper understanding of music literacy that has been so beneficial to my junior high students as both individual musicians and ensemble performers. I am so grateful to Phoenix Children's Chorus for offering this incredible summer workshop opportunity and blessing the lives of music educators and students!

I was so privileged to have attended the Carol Krueger conference for both the summer of 2020 and 2021. Her approach to music theory in the classroom is important for educators to obtain during any year but especially became crucial during the pandemic. She shares with the educator ways to encourage independent learning to happen within the student. While I have heard many music educators discouraged from the pandemic, I have been encouraged from seeing how my students have benefited from what I have learned from Carol Krueger. I don’t know how I would have personally survived without this incredible experience. I truly enjoy coming into the classroom every day and seeing my students blossom into the incredible musicians they are becoming. I highly recommend Carol Krueger’s summer workshop to all educators wanting to elevate the rigor in their classrooms.
