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. Young children must be given opportunities to experience and develop both of these important skills. The window of opportunity for the development of this lifelong gift is in early childhood, kindergarten and first grade. We must help the child explore the sensation of singing and then give them guided opportunities to reproduce the sound. To engage this age group we must use strategies and techniques that are developmentally appropriate while remaining wonderfully child like; playful, imaginary and fun.  This session will share activities that can offer this opportunity to a young child. Once they are able to do this they will be on their way to a lifetime of tuneful singing.
 
INTENTIONAL MOVEMENT IN THE MUSIC CLASSROOM      Movement is an integral part of being musical.  Think of your favorite activity in the music classroom; chances are there is some type of movement to enhance the experience. 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 literacy component of our curriculum. Participants will be introduced to strategies and techniques that will enhance the movement component while involving them in our rich folk music heritage of songs, dances, and singing games.
 
BRIDGES TO THE COMMUNITY; PLANTING SEEDS FOR OF A LIFETIME OF MUSICAL GROWTH     Music educators plant seeds for a lifetime of music making but teachable moments do not always happen in the classroom. This session will share a dozen ways to enrich the musical growth and development of your students, your school and your community while providing opportunities to inspire a lifelong love of music.

Conversational Solfege is a pedagogical method that develops musical literacy. Based on modules used to teach conversational foreign languages, Conversational Solfege develops an understanding of music through the use of rhythm syllables and solfege syllables at a conversational level, 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. Through various techniques, Conversational Solfege allows the acquisition of musical reading and writing, dictation, improvisation, and composition in an intuitive manner. This course is applicable to general music, choral, and instrumental teachers.Participants will be certified by the Feierabend Association for Music Education.

Keynote Address:  Endangered Musical Minds

All children are born with some potential to succeed with music.  But, with inappropriate or no music experiences in the early years, children will lose their intuitiveness for making accurate and sensitive musical responses.  The future success of vocal and instrumental performers as well as musical participation in daily life is significantly dependent on appropriate early intervention.  Here is critical information about how children think music and what we can do to help them musically develop.

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.
