Jules Hollander is a White French-American, cisgender male, music educator and musician. Since 2013 he has worked in public, charter, and private schools teaching grades K-12. He believes music education should not only center student joy and community building through collaborative performances, but should also contextualize music within the larger history of society, and the related social and political themes of the times. Doing so helps center the histories and cultures of communities that have traditionally been marginalized from music education curricula and spaces, and empowers and supports students in developing their critical thinking skills. In addition to his K-12 experience, Jules has co-facilitated conversations on de-centering Whiteness in music education through workshops organized by the New York Collective of Radical Educators. He has also co-created, and facilitated, discussions for Constructive White Conversations, an affinity space for White people to do the necessary work of disrupting their internalized White Supremacy and investment in Whiteness.
