Bridges to the Community; Planting Seeds for a Lifetime of Musical Growth  – Saturday Feb.27 @ 10:00 am                 

Music Educators plant seeds for a lifetime of music making but teachable moments do not always happen in the classroom. This session shares a dozen ways to enrich the musical growth and development of your students, your school and community while providing opportunities to inspire a lifelong love of music.

The Nutcracker: Movement Exploration  – Sunday Feb.28 @ 10:00an

Ballet can come alive for children if they are invited to actively participate. They gain entrance into this wonderful world by becoming the characters and using their bodies to respond appropriately, expressively and musically. When we invite our students to become actively involved, they gain a greater understanding of the music. Their appreciation will be on a deeper, more significant level.  This lively movement  oriented session will have you dancing all the characters in The Nutcrackerand you won’t need your ballet shoes.

Partners in Education: Music Connections to the General Classroom  – Sunday Feb.28  12:10 pm

Share your curriculum with your classroom colleagues? They might be surprised to discover many parallels between the music curriculum and the language arts and math curriculums. Many, if not most, of the elementary literacy goals are consistently addressed in the Music classroom. Learned Frog in the Meadow? Great! After students play in the Music classroom, send it to the general classroom where they can discover Beginning/Middle/End, Main Character/Setting, and/or Problem/Solution. There is no need to compromise our important music goals to help develop, strengthen or reinforce literacy goals. Ideas, strategies and examples of student work will be shared.

Hoping for in person, but probably Virtual

Humour, 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. The dances of a country or a people are imbued with their history, values, characteristics, spirit and heart. This knowledge can lead to greater awareness and global understanding. This lively workshop will share cultures around the world through their folk dance, play parties, and singing games. Join us as we meet wonderful people through the gift of their music. The world just might become a kinder, more tolerant place if we all held hands and danced.
