Expanding Musical Explorers at Carnegie Hall (with Teacher Notes and Instructions)
As the education arm of Carnegie Hall, the Weill Music Institute (WMI) offers a diverse portfolio of music education and social impact programs that reach over 500,000 people a year. With the success of WMI’s signature education program, Link UP, expanding from purely New York based to an international audience, the team is planning to expand another program, Musical Explorers. However, Musical Explorers involves local artists and other considerations that set it apart from its sister program. The reader is tasked with evaluating the proposed models for increasing the reach of Musical Explorers and presenting a recommendation to Carnegie Hall leadership that delivers both program and institutional goals.

Case Study Methodology
Eastman Case Studies for classroom use have three key attributes:
1. They offer an issue encountered by management in music administration, which demands a resolution or action.
2. They put the student into the business situation, creating an immersive experience that will sharpen student judgement and acumen for similar circumstances.
3. They are presented as chronologically compact scenarios, keeping to facts that bear on the case, and minimizing long histories and extraneous stories about musical arts organizations. The cases shine a light onto particular business problems and are packaged concisely for student learning.
