About this Project

The GC Music Teaching Hub is an open online repository of pedagogy materials created by and for current graduate instructors at CUNY. This project seeks to demystify the transition from student to instructor in the college music classroom, as well as support the pedagogical development of students within the Graduate Center music department.

At this stage, our website is only accessible to CUNY affiliates with an account through the CUNY Academic Commons.

Available resources include syllabuses, assignments, lesson plans and activities, as well as links to external online music resources. Our contents are sourced through volunteer submissions of teaching materials developed for music classrooms across CUNY campuses. They are made available through Creative Commons licensing. Unless otherwise stated, all resources can be used under a CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 license.

We are actively seeking submissions from graduate student instructors teaching any music course at all CUNY branches. To contribute your own teaching materials to this project, please fill out our submission form.
