FIRST STEPS IN MUSIC CERTIFICATION COURS

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.

12 STEPS TO MUSIC LITERACY USING CONVERSATIONAL SOLFEGE: Part One: Rhythmic Development 

Through carefully sequenced activities this fun workshop will address the National Standards while demonstrating how to enable students to joyfully assimilate the content and skills necessary to become musically literate including the acquisition of listening, rhythmic and melodic reading, dictation, composition, and improvisation in an intuitive manner. Participants will experience a curriculum that grows out of tonal and rhythmic elements that exist in the folk song literature of this country.  Each rhythm or tonal element will be explored in patterns, songs and themes from classical literature.

12 STEPS TO MUSIC LITERACY USING CONVERSATIONAL SOLFEGE: Part Two Melodic Development 

Literature using advanced Solfege patterns with a parallel development of rhythm patterns in 2/4 and 6/8 meter will be presented. Opportunities for early experience in part singing are demonstrated with, rhythmic and melodic sight-reading, dictation, composition, and improvisation.  Participants will experience a curriculum that grows out of tonal and rhythmic elements found in folk song to classical literature.

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)
