To complement the VocalEssence ¡Cantaré! composer residencies, VocalEssence has developed the ¡Cantaré! Teacher Resource Guide and a companion CD for teachers to use as a springboard for integration into the school curriculum prior to and after the residencies. It includes:
- Background information, lesson ideas and audio examples of high-quality Mexican folk and choral music
- Activities that will engage students in learning about Mexican music, composition and culture
- Strategies to connect students’ prior knowledge of music with the new knowledge shared through the composer residencies
- Ways to help students prepare questions and ideas for the composers-in-residence
