Wolf Trap Grants for High School Performing Arts Teachers
Each year, Wolf Trap Foundation awards Grants to six outstanding performing arts teachers. These Grants honor the exceptional instruction and performance achievements of public high school teachers of music, dance, and theatre in Washington, DC; Montgomery County and Prince George's County in Maryland; and Loudoun County, Arlington County, and Fairfax County in Virginia.
Wolf Trap Grants for High School Performing Arts Teachers support arts education efforts that parallel Wolf Trap’s performance and education priorities, including artist residencies, commissions, master classes, and technology in the arts. These Grants give teachers the opportunity to explore and enhance their curriculum through special projects that lead to student performances for the school and community.
Wolf Trap Grant recipients have created student works that include the following:
A new composition for ParkView High School’s guitar orchestra written by Canadian composer and guitarist Patrick Roux
A Master Class for the Robert E. Lee jazz band, led by Howard University Director of Jazz Studies, Dr. Arthur Dawkins
A commissioned piece for the Sherwood High School Choir written by internationally recognized choral composer and conductor David Arbury
A student written historical musical performed by the Briar Woods High School Drama Department
