Conversational Solfege Level 1 & 2 (Virtual) Certification Course  Montclair State University       4 Saturdays

 March 6, 13, 20, 27 Saturday Classes  9:30 AM – 4:30 PM

Conversational Solfege, John Feierabend’s engaging, research-based method develops notational literacy by helping children understand music through the use of rhythm and solfege syllables at a conversational level that gradually evolves into traditional notation. In this literature-driven approach, students become independent musical thinkers through a sequential process wherein they learn and joyfully perform music before progressing to the decoding, reading, and writing of musical thought. CS serves as only one part of every general music lesson, allowing teachers flexibility to incorporate other activities into their instruction. Learn why Conversational Solfege has become the gold standard in so many districts in the U.S. and even internationally.

DR, MISSY STRONG

First Steps in Music VIRTUAL Certification Course: 4 Saturdays April 10, 27, 24, May 1, 9:00am-4:00pm

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 from the Feierabend Association for Music Education.
