The fourth installment of the Elementary Methods Workshop, participants on this day will experience an introduction to Kodály for new teachers and/or fresh materials for teachers with experience. This fun-filled day will be comprised of songs, games and activities that will “prepare, present and practice” musical concepts. Participants will leave with many activities that they will be able to utilize in their classrooms.
The Elementary Methods Workshop spends 5 days throughout the summer exploring the methods of Orff, Kodály, Dalcroze and Gordon in the general music classroom, as well as other early childhood techniques. These single-day workshops will give an overview of each of these music education approaches and will include demonstrations and discussion of classroom applications with practicing teachers. Register for a single day, multiple days, or the entire week.
