First Steps in Music Certification Course will be offered as an ONLINE COURSE. All classes will be held in real time live stream. No classes will be recorded.  The Hartt School of the University of Hartford is in the Eastern Standard Time Zone. 

This July 20th to July 30th Class will meet Monday through Thursday from  2:30 PM to 5:00 PM.

The First Steps in Music curriculum is designed to prepare children to become musical in by being Tuneful, Beatful, and Artful. First Steps in Music for Infants and Toddlers provides developmentally appropriate activities that are well suited for children under three years old with their caregivers. First Steps in Music for Preschool and Beyond provides activities for children as young as three but appropriate for any aged child that needs to further develop their tuneful, beatful, and artful abilities. Folk songs and rhymes as well as classical music are the primary source materials that are used to develop their musical minds and abilities. Created by Dr. John Feierabend, this pedagogical approach contains everything you need to lead a music class for preschool and early elementary students, including: Echo Songs, Call-and-Response Songs, Simple Songs, SongTales, Action Songs, Circle Games, Beat Motion Activities, and more. Ample time will be spent on exploring complete lesson plans for a three-year curriculum.  Participants who successfully complete this course will receive an official certificate of completion for First Steps in Music from the Feierabend Association for Music Education

During this course, participants will be introduced to current research findings and the implications of that research on the development of an early childhood music and movement curriculum. Materials and activities will be presented for children from birth to age seven. Collecting materials, designing teaching strategies, lesson plans, and yearly curriculum, as well as developing and promoting an early childhood program, will be covered. Active participation in both music and movement activities will be the basis for most instruction.
