JOHN CREVER

Meeting Music Literacy Standards with Conversational Solfege: Rhythmic & Tonal 

John Feierabend has been at the forefront of music literacy research and pedagogy for more than 40 years with nearly 80 books and media publications to date. Join Feierabend Association (FAME) endorsed teacher trainer John Crever as he unpacks the 12-step approach to music reading as proposed in Feierabend’s works Feierabend Fundamentals and Conversational Solfege (CS).  Intended for both the general and performing music classrooms, 2nd-12th grade, CS sets up musical experiences for students to learn the same way they attained their first language, conversationally. These sessions demonstrate  Feierabend’s Kodaly inspired, 12-step method to introduce students to music reading by an “ear-first” approach, conversationally improvising musical ideas that become original written compositions.

Long Island Orff Schelwerk Association April 6, 2019 Workshop

Why should I teach folk dance and how do I start?

Folk dancing in the elementary and middle school classroom allows our students to demonstrate what we’ve been teaching them about moving to beat while also experiencing their own growing musicality. They are able to understand form in music better through movement while experiencing an authentic community music-making activity, which means they can articulate what form in music is more effectively. Additionally, when we lead folk dance instruction we are helping students get what is so often lacking in our culture: opportunities for positive peer interaction. These interactions help our students build etiquette skills while also creating positive community with their peers. But the overarching thing that a student who is folk dancing in a music classroom experiences is…fun! Come learn how to introduce folk dance into your music classroom!

FRIDAY APRIL 12 (1:30 – 2:30 PM) “Everybody Claps! Clapping Games from Around the World”

EVERYBODY CLAPS! Clapping Games Around the World

All cultures, all ages, all abilities! Clapping Games are immediately engaging; language is not even required and yet laughter abounds. You are never too young or too old for a Clapping Game; they are simply too much fun. But, if you look closely, through the lens of Multiple Intelligence, you will find that Clapping Games deepen and enrich all the intelligences and are of significant benefit to the development of our minds, bodies and spirit. While we are joyfully engaged in trying to figure out which hand to use when and where, our minds and bodies are working at a profound level helping us coordinate movements, visually track movements, orient our bodies, maintain beat and rhythm, plan and sequence motor movements and develop social skills by cooperating with others, accommodating others and paying close attention to others; all in order for us to have a successful experience. This lively and spirited session will share Clapping Games from around the world, guaranteed to engage your mind, body and spirit.

 

FRIDAY APRIL 12 (2:40 – 3:40 PM) “ How To Host a Family Folk Dance”

Create a musical bridge from school to home. Wear your dancing shoes as you learn how to structure and sequence a Folk Dance to make it immediately inclusive and inviting for all. The key is to get everyone moving from the start.

CONVERSATIONAL SOLFEGE LEVEL 1 & 2 CERTIFICATION COURSE

Through carefully sequenced activities, Conversational Solfege™ addresses the National Standards, while enabling students to joyfully assimilate the skills and content necessary to become musically literate, including the acquisition of listening, rhythmic and melodic reading, dictation, composition, and improvisation in an intuitive manner. Applications of Conversational Solfege™ are ideally suited to: elementary general music curricula; choral organizations at all levels; Orff Schulwerk; Kodály; Dalcroze; Gordon Music Learning Theory; high school and college sight singing and ear training; class piano; Suzuki; as well as recorder, band, and orchestral instrumental instruction.

Dr Feierabend examines a pedagogical method that develops music literacy. Based on models used to teach conversational foreign languages, this course develops an understanding of music through the use of rhythm and tonal syllables at a “conversational” level that gradually evolves into reading, writing, improvisation, and composition skills. This is a literature-driven curriculum. The sequencing of musical elements grows out of those tonal and rhythmic elements that exist in folk song literature. Each rhythm or tonal element is explored in patterns, songs, and themes from classical literature. Applications of conversational solfege range from elementary general and choral music courses to collegiate level choral, sight-singing, and ear-training courses.

Participants who successfully complete this course will receive an official certificate of completion  for Conversational Solfege Level 1 & 2 from the Feierabend Association for Music Education (FAME).

WORLD FOLK DANCES AND FOLK SONGS

June 17th – 20th , 2019 Monday through Thursday , 5:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Around the World in Song and Dance

Humor, love, kindness, and exuberance are universal. Community music making builds a bridge where we are offered a glimpse into another culture and delighted to find ourselves looking back. History, spirit, and heart are present in a country’s musical culture. This lively workshop will explore 20 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.

2019 First Steps in Music Certificate Course

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
