DR. JOHN FEIERABEND

VIRTUAL FIRST STEPS IN MUSIC CERTIFICATION COURSE

Virtual training on Saturdays via Zoom 9/18, 9/25 10/2, & 10/9 (24 hours class time for course)All Saturday Classes are 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (EST)

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 a First Steps in Music Certification Certificate from the Feierabend Association for Music Education (FAME).
