The Dana Foundation will continue to support The Music Teacher Mentoring Program. MTMP was created by the Peabody Preparatory in collaboration with the Baltimore City Public School System to meet a growing need for coaching, mentoring and professional development of elementary and middle school music teachers in the Baltimore City Public Schools. Music teachers are mentored by Peabody Mentors through classroom observation, on-site coaching and training in appropriate music learning methods, effective teaching techniques, classroom management skills, lesson and unit planning, use of teaching resources and materials, music technology, and repertoire development.
