Equity Through the Instrumental Music Education Program.

This paper describes what the instrumental music program requires for equity through culturally responsive pedagogy, bilingualism, and action for change. By using the focus of the narrative and a collection of qualitative and quantitative data, a support for the instrumental music program can be found through equity. This action research paper will guide the instrumental music educator through my own research and findings. The research also examines current literature and resources to support the instrumental music educator in culturally responsive practices.
