ACEMM’s Book Study is a community of dedicated educators that gather each Thursday evening to discuss books with the goal of improving our own pedagogy and musicianship. These discussions are moderated by ACEMM board members Kate Bright, Liban Gómez, and Jeaneau Julian.
Meetings will happen every Thursday night via Zoom from 7:30 – 8:30 PM ET.
