Advanced Teacher Training Seminar

New York City
June 6-11, 2023

The upcoming Advanced Teacher Training Seminar (ATTS) returns to New York City for six whirlwind days, including Broadway musicals and plays, performances at the Metropolitan Opera and New York Philharmonic, museum tours and face-to-face sessions with key creators and educators. We are thrilled to be back in NYC and to immerse outstanding Muse teachers in the arts in the most exciting and thoughtful ways!

To be afforded the opportunities we are given to bring so much art, culture and connectivity back to our students; to be able to help our students understand the intricate relationships between the arts, their lives, society, history and their learning has been one of the greatest joys of my professional life.
