Objective and Outcomes: *

Attend workshop sessions and new music reading sessions; learn new techniques, tips, approaches, as well as emphasize tried-and-true methods of music instruction in schools, churches, and other community entities: learn about, and hear/sing/play dozens of examples of brand new music; choose a piece or two and study it more in-depth; come up with lesson plan(s) to show how you would teach the music to your students (community musicians); present ways in which one would assess the learning of the items taught to their students/community members.

Resources/Course Materials: *

Participants each year receive a packet of information, dozens of music scores (composers such as Michael Sweeney, James Swearingen, Robert W. Smith, Samuel Hazo, etc.) , and handouts of various teaching tools. Clinicians teaching the events include Andy Beck, Mari Schay, Kevin McBeth, Brian Balmages, etc.

Attendance: *

Students submit application at the event, and are present for the required # of sessions. The materials they hand in 1 month after the session would also be indicative of their attendance.

Evaluation and Evidence of Learning and Application: *

here is the info taken from the information sheet that each receives:
a. Typed project paper should clearly identify the value of each workshop component you attended, as it relates to your employment assignment. (One page for one credit, and two pages for two credits) Please include a brief description of your teaching assignment(s), and your e-mail address (for correspondence) with your paper.

b. Choose one work/composition presented at the workshop that you are interested in teaching to your students. Study the score of your chosen work, and provide a typed analysis (brief, to include information regarding form, key relationships, texture, and other components normally present in an analysis). There are works of high quality at every level of music instruction. Music for the less experienced may lack the depth of complexity and subtlety of higher level compositions, but there exist well-crafted musical creations at every level. Please be certain to choose a work that has a substantial degree of depth and creative/artistic value. If your composition is lacking in substantial depth due to its intended instructional level, please choose two or three more simple/short compositions instead of one.

c1. (For one graduate credit) Prepare and type a unique, effective lesson plan for one major section of your chosen work/composition (choral/elementary: 1 complete work), being certain to include in the lesson plan the following: 1) your initial presentation of the work to your students; 2) 2 or 3 instructional components (techniques, musical elements, concepts, etc.) you would present during the ensuing days/weeks of the unit/lesson plan; 3) any *post-performance assessment you would utilize. N.B.: Your score study of the chosen section/composition should be evident in your presentation strategies of this lesson plan. Please submit a score or copy of score with your lesson plan!!

c2. (For two graduate credits) Prepare and type a complete lesson plan that is unique and effective for this chosen work/composition (choral/elementary 2 works), being certain the typed lesson plan includes the following: 1) your initial presentation of the work to your students; 2) 4 or 5 instructional components you would present during the ensuing days/weeks of the unit/lesson plan; 3) any post-performance assessment you would utilize. N.B.: Your score study of the chosen composition(s) should be evident in your presentation strategies of this lesson plan. Please submit scores or copies of scores with your lesson plan!!
