Project Background

Re/sound: Songs of Wisconsin is a collection of educational media resources for general music programs serving grades 4-8, and is a collaboration with Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA).

In a state-wide survey and listening sessions with music educators, we learned about the need for current, authentic, culturally diverse resources, as well as support in teaching with and about music from different cultures. These educator-stated needs shaped the direction and goals of the collection.

This multimedia collection includes video interviews with Wisconsin musicians, performances, audio files, and educator engagement guides designed to help activate the media with learners.

“Music is a global language…
everyone can communicate. You can express your feelings and your thoughts, your energy and your love. You can connect and communicate with the rest of the world, without limits or frontiers.”
