This course is designed to help teachers create a music program that will enhance the classroom environment while adding new dimensions to learning. No music degree or special talent is needed - just a little effort. The outcome is that students will leave class singing while reviewing lessons in their heads. This course will help the regular classroom teacher create a collection of music for use in every day curriculum that can be adapted to any subject or grade level. Included is a student response booklet with opportunities to respond to music with words and pictures.
By the end of this course the participant will:
- Know how to use recorded songs to aid in developing a good learning environment.
- Be able to teach the making of musical instruments out of everyday materials.
- Play the soprano recorder.
Teaching Standards met in this course are:
