GIML Membership

Why Join GIML?

The Gordon Institute for Music Learning (GIML) is a community of musicians, learners, teachers, and researchers that believe in the musical potential of each individual. We believe that each person is fundamentally musical and—through audiation-based practices—can learn and build skills in music. We support our community through opportunities for musical and professional development and growth. We welcome all learners in every stage of their developmental and professional journeys, and are passionate about supporting the processes through which human beings learn music.
