Use the Power of Storytelling to Create Change - Challenge for Change Learning Series

Stories can make us laugh, help us solve problems, and — more importantly — teach us about ourselves and the world around us. We’ve all heard stories about people who have faced discrimination and inequities based on their race, religion, or socioeconomic status. Sharing these stories can be a powerful tool for activating change. How can we use our stories to create change in our global community? 

Featuring Malala Yousafzai, girls’ education activist, co-founder of Malala Fund, and a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.

To thrive at school or work and to build empathy for others, it’s important that  educators, students, and individuals hear relevant stories that reflect the diverse experiences, backgrounds, and circumstances of the community.

Join the challenge.

To begin the journey of making lasting social change, we’ve created this guide so you can use the power of storytelling to create change and make our world a better place.

Participation in music programs builds character, creates opportunities, and changes lives. As a musician and a music educator of over twenty years, I have observed the growth and evolution of numerous young students not only as musicians, but also as responsible citizens with integrity, a strong work ethic, and the ability to work collaboratively with others.

In this new podcast, Music Education Memoirs, I aim to showcase the stories of those who credit their experiences in school music programs as significant in shaping their lives.

Music Education Memoirs: A Podcast

On Episode One, I serve as my first "guest," sharing the story of how music prevented me from being a school dropout and how it has provided numerous opportunities for personal growth, regional and international travel, and has ultimately provided a livelihood for my family. Episode Two will feature a mentor and fellow educator, Bob Priest, as he pays tribute to those music educators who shaped his life.

Episodes will be released biweekly and will be served up as small bites, only 5-10 minutes in duration.

Do you have a story of how music has transformed your life? Could you recommend others to tell their story? Please contact me so that we might consider them as guests.

I hope you enjoy, but ultimately I hope that this podcast can serve as an agent for change, bringing awareness to the value of participation in school music programs.
