Course Description

Mary-Kate Newell
Boyer College of Music and Dance, Music Education Adjunct Faculty

This workshop challenges you to consider meanings of music learning and music development in the context of responsive, life-long music learning (including English language learners and students with disabilities). First applications of meanings are by considering those relative to your music learning and development, and then to your peer-teaching and future extern, student, and in-service teaching.
For example, questions such as “What does music learning, or song-getting look like, and what does it mean to learn music, or learn a song? What is the relationship between learning and development? What is the value of aspects of music learning, and to whom?” To ask you to consider music learners’ perspectives throughout, we offer learners unfamiliar (or less familiar) music learning situations in which to apply your learning of course content using introductory teaching applications. The applications accompany methods, theories, materials, skills, and techniques/strategies designed to support various aspects of your (and your students’) making music in classroom, studio, or ensemble (including sectionals or pull-out lessons) settings with understanding, flexibility, and fluency.
