I don’t know how to start.
If you’ve ever thought this to yourself, you’re not alone. As a matter of fact, it’s one of the first places we go, our default, if you will, when it comes to trying new ideas and incorporating new approaches to our teaching practice.
It’s something I often hear when I share an activity at a workshop, or I’m sharing different modes of active music making that may feel unfamiliar and uncomfortable to those who have never experienced them, let alone have never taught them to kids.
The answer is simple. It doesn’t feel easy, but it’s simple. Just Start. And start with with the music. And today’s podcast is all about how to start with active music making… instead of starting with notation.
