Teaching Artists International (TAI) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to develop global citizen musicians through artistic cultural exchanges that empower youth and support music education around the world. We achieve that mission by partnering with socially-driven music institutions around the world to provide teaching artists residency opportunities to travel, perform, teach, and support our global music partners. Teaching Artists International curates the experience by bringing along world-class faculty to facilitate our workshops on a variety of topics ranging from social justice, music education, and teaching artistry. As a TAI Fellow, you will be immersed in a new culture, given hands-on teaching experience and feedback, gain international performance experience with other musicians, and hone your skills as a teaching artist.
