Artist in Residence
Enhancing student learning outcomes in schools
ArtMix Artist in Residence program uses the arts to enhance education in the classroom. From preschool to grade 12, students with disabilities will expand on curriculum through the arts. ArtMix teaching artists work with classroom teachers to create a lesson plan that meets the needs of the students. Then our teaching artist will team teach with the classroom teacher, while providing tools and techniques that can be used after the residency has ended.
As professional artists, ArtMix Teaching Artists have expertise in one or more arts disciplines and skills in working with students, youth, adults and teachers. Teaching Artists are also familiar with various disabilities and effective methods for adapting techniques and differentiating instruction to reach all learners.
As part of each American Pianists Awards competition, every finalist (5 per competition) completes a residency with a high school orchestra or jazz band. Residencies typically span the course of three days and culminate in a joint public performance with school musicians. Known as Concerto Curriculum, this program brings the beauty of world-class music to new audiences and non-traditional venues, provides pedagogical growth for developing artists and inspires new generations of young musicians.
Five schools are selected every competition year (future school years will be 2020-21 classical, 2022-23 jazz, 2024-25 classical, etc.).
Concerto Curriculum is produced at NO COST TO THE HOSTING SCHOOL.
Schools will apply the spring before each program begins. If your school is interested in hosting an APA finalist, please contact Milner Fuller, email@example.com.

Kids Dance Outreach In-School Residencies
Kids Dance Outreach (KDO) provides school communities with high-quality arts immersion programs. Through KDO’s programs children are inspired by the joy of dance and music as they’re given something positive to focus on, specific goals to attain, a sense of meaningful accomplishment and an appreciation of the Arts.
Every class is taught by three professional teaching artists: a Master Teaching Artist a Musician and an Assistant Teacher.
KDO provides in-school programs for students in second through fourth grade.
KDO offers 12-session residencies, which can take the form of a 3-week intensive or a 12-week program.
KDO classes take place during the school day, ensuring that dance is integral to learning in our partner school communities.
All students in a selected grade or grades participate in the program.
Classroom teachers are actively engaged in the program, helping to connect learning in KDO with the larger curriculum.
KDO works with a single classroom of children at a time, and classes generally run 45–50 minutes. Each moment of an KDO class is rich with energetic, rigorous, and joyful learning.
All KDO programs include live music and depending on schedule may culminate in a final performance, a celebratory event that galvanizes the entire school community.
Music Composition by Classical Music Indy
This program combines visual art, graphic score notation, and music composition to get students sharing their creative voices. Led by a team of professional musicians, students will create visual stories as they learn about rhythm and pitch, and later delve into music notation. A combination of music performance and hands-on activity allows students to take their visual story and translate it into music. By the end, students craft their very own music compositions, which are then performed by a professional musician!
This program is a fully-customizable arts integration residency available for grades 3 – 8. In five consecutive 50-minute sessions, a professional teaching artist will teach theatrical techniques while creating a readers theatre script approximately 5 minutes in length, suitable for a final presentation. Readers Theatre utilizes the three actor tools of body, mind, and voice to teach any curriculum from science and math to writing or literature. Social issues are also available for our Readers Theatre program including anti-bullying, communication skills, conflict resolution, body safety, and violence prevention. The cost of this program includes a teacher’s planning meeting and a custom script.
The Arts are a vital part of a balanced, complete education. The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir invites to the stage local high school choirs for participation in Festival of Carols, one of the season’s most popular concert series, as part of the Spotlight Choir initiative.
Throughout the state of Indiana, high school choral music programs continue to grow and benefit from collaborative efforts such as the community Spotlight Choir series – what an experience for a young person to hone their skills: musicianship, study skills, communication, problem solving, time management and more.
