Kodály Pedagogy I: Beginning Lesson Planning
Faculty: Christopher Roberts • July 5-9, 2021 • 1:00-2:30pm PDT
In this course, participants will learn principles for designing lessons in which children maximize their skill development while joyfully creating music -- the holy grail of music teaching! Designed for those new to the Kodály approach, this course will focus on first grade. We will consider ways to purposefully select culturally relevant repertoire, craft five-minute focus segments with music literacy objectives, and put those segments into fuller lessons that incorporate creativity, social-emotional learning, and musical fun.
