Teaching Vocal Development in the Younger 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.
Using Classical Music to teach Rhythmic and Melodic Literacy
Through carefully sequenced activities this 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 reading, dictation, composition, and improvisation in an intuitive manner. Participants will experience a curriculum that grows out of rhythmic elements that exist in the folk song literature of this country. Each rhythmic element will also be explored in patterns, songs and themes from classical literature.
