The benefits of educational travel prove Benjamin Franklin’s belief: “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”
When Tarpon Conservatory students travel, the opportunity offers experiences that differ from the classroom. These experiences help students to be open to possibilities. After visiting Berklee College of Music on a Conservatory trip, one such student, Nick Bredal, dreamed of going to Berklee — he’s attending new student orientation this week.
Experiential learning and travel put students in new scenarios and settings where communication, critical thinking and problem-solving accelerate learning. They also discover parts of the country they may have never seen, meet and see other student musicians perform and interact with world-class instructors and clinicians.
