Labeling and telling students about a concept from a theoretical perspective has no bearing on whether or not they can use it and whether or not they can use it in community or to make their own music.
Aside from the ordering of concepts and skills we teach in our music classrooms, there’s this whole other side of “stuff” that we need to figure out in order to teach our children music effectively. How children learn music best is one of those big, “can of worms” types of questions that can easily leave you wondering even more than that first original question.
Today on the podcast, my friend Victoria Boler is back to chat about music teacher philosophy and how we both have discovered that children learn best.
Here’s a few things we talk about on today’s episode
(1) The importance of music literacy and fluency
(2) What active music making really means
(3) Why having multiple pedagogical tools and musical media is so essential to your music classroom.
