Exploring instrumental conducting combines fun and education! In this class, students will learn about music through "doing" by listening to and conducting various musical works. Will we be having fun, but while doing so we will also be learning about music appreciation, musical concepts such as rhythm, meter, tempo, and steady beat, math concepts such as counting and grouping, physical skills such as motor coordination and ear/hand/eye coordination, social skills such as leadership,...
Music appreciation, steady beat, conducting patterns, emotion in music.
I am a former music teacher, turned stay-at-home mom. I taught elementary general music and choir before deciding to stay home with my children. Currently, I teach music classes in my community. I also teach English to students on a virtual platform, and have children who take virtual classes, so I understand the techniques that work effectively to engage students during classes. My Masters degree is in Music Performance from the University of Akron, OH. My undergraduate work at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania resulted in a dual degree in Music Education and Music Performance. My performance experience and my experience leading various ensembles make me an excellent fit to teach beginner conducting! I believe that a child's musical education is SO important and will benefit them in many aspects of their lives. Music is applicable to all subjects and parts of life! It helps to build a child's confidence and is a means for them to express themselves through creative and interactive experiences.
Students are encouraged to continue to listen to music and see if they can apply the skills that they learned during class!
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
