Building Masterful Musicianship in the K-12 Music Classroom
February 28 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
Presenter: Dr. Leigh Ann Garner, St. Olaf College, Minneapolis, MN
Music educators have the unique and challenging opportunity to engage their students in active music making that is rooted in a sequential curricular structure. In this interactive workshop, participants will explore quality repertoire and practical teaching strategies appropriate for teaching in K-12 music settings. Specifically, strategies for fostering musicianship skills in singing, part work, inner hearing, memory, improvising, and creating will be offered, along with ideas of how these skills are embedded and function in an instructional sequence.
