Carolyn Bennett teaches grades 6–12 at Wheeler High School/Middle School in North Stonington, Connecticut. Her work with the Library of Congress began in August for the 2018–2019 school year.
She says, “My responsibility toward my fellow music educators is to draw them toward these resources and help us achieve our National Standards. The resources at the Library show how embedded music is in people’s lives. In addition to historically and culturally significant scores and audio recordings, we have images of people singing at marches, in their living rooms; we have letters from composers.”
