Journey Around the Globe with Recorder 2

Add another dimension to your classroom music making with the soprano recorder, guiding your students beyond simple drill and into the realm of making art with music from a variety of cultures. During this session, we will explore a child-developmental approach that can transform recorder playing into an integral part of the music classroom experience, rather than an isolated unit. With these performance-ready lessons, notes are introduced individually, in sequence, and in a musical context.

Using Children's Literature to Teach Melodic Literacy

When we think about teaching music literacy to elementary-aged children, most music educators’ minds turn to Zoltan Kodály. In this session, children’s literature serves as the inspiration for melodic music reading via the Kodály sequence. Your students will enjoy singing, dancing, playing barred instruments, creative movement, and improvisation as they learn to read music notation.
