Patrick Campbell Jankowski ’13 MM, ’15 MMA has been appointed Manager of Global K–12 Programs at The Juilliard School. Beginning this fall, Jankowski will also serve as an Apprentice Teaching Artist with the New York Philharmonic.

Jankowski, a hornist, is a Doctor of Musical Arts candidate at the Yale School of Music. He noted that his new roles “will allow me to approach music education and engagement from a variety of different angles: playing, teaching, writing, developing, and planning. It is a multifaceted and multidisciplinary approach to expanding the reach of music and other arts to new generations and new audiences, and I am so fortunate to be involved with this incredible group of artists, visionaries, and leaders.”

Jankowski is working within Juilliard Global Ventures, an initiative of Juilliard that is extending the School’s reach through site-based programs and digital products. A major site-based initiative is the development and launch of a Global K–12 Performing Arts Curriculum in cooperation with Nord Anglia Education, the operator of 41 international schools in 15 countries. Jankowski is part of a team that is developing and coordinating a comprehensive K–12 performing arts curriculum and associated teacher training and quality control programs, after-school lesson programs, and extracurricular summer intensive programs.

“Juilliard is creating new models for quality arts education, to enhance the experience of students and their families in schools worldwide,” Jankowski said. “The team I am joining is working to create resources for teachers and students that will illuminate and strengthen the way that music, dance, and drama enrich lives. The mission is to enhance cultural literacy These young people will then spread their awareness and relationship with the performing arts outward to their communities, which are literally all over the world. I am in awe of the talents and skills of the team, and inspired by their passion. It is such a promising environment in which to grow these exciting plans. The same goes for the highly enthusiastic and skilled body of educators at Nord Anglia. Suddenly, I have lots of answers to that question of ‘why are you a musician?’”

The New York Philharmonic’s education department offers programs that provide a context for families, school groups, and adults to experience live performance in ways that nurture a love of music. Partnering with classroom teachers and music specialists, the Philharmonic’s Teaching Artists use major orchestral repertoire to teach students, teachers, and parents how to perceive, perform, and create music via year-long residencies. Teaching Artist Apprentices have the opportunity to learn and develop their skills via co-teaching, professional development, and feedback from classroom observations. Apprentices also perform in-school concerts, instrument demonstrations, and other educational services at partner schools alongside current teaching artist faculty. The education department selects musicians who show the promise to become true leaders in the field and uphold the Philharmonic’s commitment to excellence in creativity and engagement.
