JOHN CREVER

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.

LILLIE FEIERABEND
Movement is an integral part of being musicaland plays an essential role in music development. Most of our elementary repertoire contains a movement component. This is no surprise; children learn best when they are able to use their bodies. The movement component of our curriculum is worthy of the same explicit and intentional instruction that we devote to the tonal and rhythmic aspects of our curriculum. This lively workshop will focus on movement skills and developmentally appropriate strategies and techniques designed to enhance movement in any music curriculum, while engaging students in our rich folk music repertoire.  Knowledge of these strategies and techniques will help students move competently, effectively and musically. We will spend each morning covering topics that enhance the movement component in your music classroom. 
 
We will spend each afternoon applying this knowledge as we discover folk dances, passing games, play parties, rounds and clapping games from fifteen countries around the world. The music games of a country or a people are imbued with their history, values, characteristics, spirit and heart.  We can appreciate and begin to know a little about a people when we move in their footsteps. These are delightful gifts uniting not only generations, but cultures. They allow us to build a bridge where we are offered a glimpse into another culture and are delighted to find ourselves looking back. This knowledge can lead to greater awareness and global understanding. 
Course Objectives 
Participants will be introduced to the following topics and their relevance and application in a music classroom.
  • Intentional Movement in the Music Classroom
  • The Theory of Multiple Intelligences, 
  • The Brain Dance 
  • First Steps in Music (Movement Objectives)
  • Bridges to the Community 
  • Family Folk Dance

INTENTIONAL MOVEMENT IN THE MUSIC CLASSROOM Movement is an integral part of being musical. Think of your favorite finger play, action song or play party. Chances are there is some type of movement involved.  So much of our early childhood music repertoire contains a movement component. This is no surprise; children learn best when they are able to use their bodies. The movement component is worthy of the same explicit and intentional instruction that we devote to the tonal and rhythmic aspects of our curriculum. This is accomplished, not by compromising our musical goals and standards, but simply by manipulating the material that we are already teaching our students.  We can make the movement in our finger plays, action songs, play parties and dances even more beneficial for each student. This lively session will share strategies and techniques that will enhance the movement component in a music classroom.
