Education Program
While at Juilliard, Ms. Verdejo participated in the Lincoln Center Education Program that brought music into the schools. She created a 40 minute program entitled "Color My World with Music" which she presented in schools throughout the New York City area.

Ms. Verdejo has created another 40 minute program entitled "The Black Spiritual in America" which shows how this music was used by the slaves to communicate with each other in code, and it's significance in the development of Rhythm and Blues, Jazz and Rock. She also uses audience participation as a tool to involve the students. These programs are designed for middle and high school audiences.
