FIRST STEPS IN MUSIC: VOCAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE EARLY YEARS                                  

During the early learning years, children can acquire musical sensitivities, which will provide them with a lifetime of expressive and accurate singing intuitions.  This lively session will present insights and activities that can foster those intuitions in children from three to age nine, through the use of folk songs and games.

 FIRST STEPS IN MUSIC: MOVEMENT DEVELOPMENT IN THE EARLY YEARS         

During the early learning years, children can acquire musical sensitivities, which will provide them with a lifetime of expressive and accurate movement intuitions.  This energetic session will present insights and activities that can foster those intuitions in children from birth to age nine, through the use of folk songs and rhymes as well as through movement experiences with classical recordings.

12 STEPS TO MUSIC LITERACY USING CONVERSATIONAL SOLFEGE:  Part One Rhythmic Development                                       

Through carefully sequenced activities this fun workshop will address the National Standards while demonstrating how to enable students to joyfully assimilate the content and skills necessary to become musically literate including the acquisition of listening, rhythmic and melodic reading, dictation, composition, and improvisation in an intuitive manner. Participants will experience a curriculum that grows out of tonal and rhythmic elements that exist in the folk song literature of this country.  Each rhythm or tonal element will be explored in patterns, songs and themes from classical literature.

12 STEPS TO MUSIC LITERACY USING CONVERSATIONAL SOLFEGE: Part Two Melodic Development                            

Literature using advanced Solfege patterns with a parallel development of rhythm patterns in 2/4 and 6/8 meter will be presented. Opportunities for early experience in part singing are demonstrated with, rhythmic and melodic sight-reading, dictation, composition, and improvisation.  Participants will experience a curriculum that grows out of tonal and rhythmic elements found in folk song to classical literature.
