MMC - Small Movers, Big Ideas: Active Music Making in Upper Elementary

  • Devos Center Grand Rapids MI (map)

Presented with Kristin Vogt Moore at the Michigan Music Conference

This session will exhibit strategies to demonstrate understanding, foster independent musicianship, and cultivate creativity through quality movement experiences. In this session, participants will explore practical applications for sequencing musical concepts through movement in the upper elementary grades. Although movement activities at this stage of music learning still incorporate exploration and vocabulary building, appropriate extensions provide space for student agency and creativity.
