MIMA Music is an educational nonprofit that hosts collaborative songwriting programs for youth and adults in the Central Virginia area. MIMA is growing and needs to train and employ more musicians and educators interested in teaching classes during the upcoming academic year.

Participants of the upcoming workshop will experience the MIMA Method and learn the basic principles of delivering the Method in MIMA classrooms. As such, the workshop is primarily intended for those interested in working as paid MIMA Teaching Artists. It may also be of interest to educators in the arts looking to expand their pedagogical repertoire and musicians interested in learning new approaches to collaborative songwriting. For everyone, we promise an engaging musical experience and the opportunity to meet like-minded creative folks.

The workshop will be led by veteran MIMA Teaching Artists Caleb Dance and Jordan Perry. Over the course of ~15 hours, Caleb and Jordan will lead trainees and current MIMA Teaching Artists to produce and perform an original composition using the MIMA Method. After completing the workshop, participants will receive preliminary certification as MIMA Teaching Artists, the primary requirement to work in the MIMA classroom.

New trainees are asked to pay a $120 tuition for the training. Contact info@mimamusic.org to apply for a tuition waiver.
