or
(MUS 273HC) Non-Credit for 30 Professional Development Hours

Conversational Solfege is a pedagogical method created by Dr. John Feierabend that develops musical literacy. Conversational Solfege is for children who have already developed their tuneful, beatful, and artful skills and are ready to develop a deeper understanding of rhythm and melody. Conversational Solfege develops an understanding of music through the use of rhythm syllables and solfege syllables at a conversational level, and then gradually evolves into traditional notation. Through carefully sequenced activities, Conversational Solfege enables students to joyfully assimilate the skills and content necessary to be musically literate. Patterns, folk songs, poetry, rhymes and classical music are the primary source materials that are used to develop those musical skills. Ample time will be spent on creating effective lesson plans and opportunities for peer teaching will be made available. Participants who successfully complete this course will receive an official certificate of completion from the Feierabend Association for Music Education (FAME). Enrollment limited.

Note: Participants may only enroll in one level of FAME certification. First Steps and Conversational Solfege CANNOT be taken concurrently.

  • Multiple Intelligence,
  • Vocal Development in Young Children
  • Management: The Key to Successful Teaching
  • Intentional Movement in the Music Classroom
  • Folk Dance Workshops

INTENTIONAL MOVEMENT IN THE MUSIC CLASSROOM

Movement is an integral part of being musical; worthy of the same explicit and intentional instruction devoted to the literacy component of our curriculum. This lively session shares strategies and techniques to enhance the movement component while involving students in our folk music heritage of songs, dances, and singing games.

VOCAL DEVELOPMENT IN YOUNG CHILDREN

For young children, tuneful singing is the marriage of tuneful thinking and physiological awareness. The child must be able to first “catch the tune” and then reproduce it in head voice. This lively session shares strategies and techniques that are developmentally appropriate while remaining wonderfully childlike; playful, imaginary and fun.

MANAGEMENT: THE KEY TO SUCCESSFUL TEACHING

Music educators spend a great deal of time developing, designing and delivering good lessons. Classroom management should also be the product of thoughtful and sequential design. This session shares strategies that help promote active learning by establishing routines so the focus can be on the musical growth of each student

The school year provides many opportunities for our students to become involved with music. When we provide experiences outside the classroom, we also make them available to our faculty, school, and community. When the community is invited to participate in our Music Programs, they become invested in the child’s development and the growth of the music Program. Participants will be introduced to a dozen ways to enrich the musical growth and development of their students, schools, and communities by creating opportunities for musical engagement.

Around the World in Song and Dance  – Lillie Feierabend

Humor, love, kindness and joy are universal. Community music making builds a bridge where we are offered a window into another culture and delighted to find ourselves looking back. A country’s musical culture can also offer insight into their history, spirit, and heart. This understanding can lead to greater awareness and global understanding. This lively workshop will explore 12 cultures through their folk dance, rounds, passing games, play parties, clapping games, and singing games. Join us as we meet wonderful people through the gift of their music. The world just might become a kinder, more tolerant place if we all held hands anddanced, clapped, and sang.

INTENTIONAL MOVEMENT IN THE MUSIC CLASSROOM

Movement is an integral part of being musical; worthy of the same explicit and intentional instruction devoted to the literacy component of our curriculum. This lively session shares strategies and techniques to enhance the movement component while involving students in our folk music heritage of songs, dances, and singing games.

VOCAL DEVELOPMENT IN YOUNG CHILDREN

 For young children, tuneful singing is the marriage of tuneful thinking and physiological awareness. The child must be able to first “catch the tune” and then reproduce it in head voice. This lively session shares strategies and techniques that are developmentally appropriate while remaining wonderfully childlike; playful, imaginary and fun.

MANAGEMENT: THE KEY TO SUCCESSFUL TEACHING

 Music educators spend a great deal of time developing, designing and delivering good lessons. Classroom management should also be the product of thoughtful and sequential design. This session shares strategies that help promote active learning by establishing routines so the focus can be on the musical growth of each student
