InterPlay, a collaboration between the Peabody Institute and University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), began in 2016 to connect Peabody graduate students with UMBC undergraduate music majors. The partnership has evolved to feature a mentored, four-session teaching project for Peabody graduate students in collaboration with UMBC faculty. Teaching projects to date have included master classes, lessons for specified instruments, chamber music coaching, orchestral sectionals, audition preparation seminars, improvisation workshop, career advising, and mock audition panels.
Interplay 2023-2024 participants will receive a $300 stipend. In addition to valuable teaching experience, participants also receive mentorship from both Peabody and UMBC faculty, as well as feedback on teaching from students and audiences.
