Nick Wild – 10/21/17


Music teachers are frequently asked to reinforce skills and concepts from other academic areas.  Our challenge is to provide meaningful integration without sacrificing essential components of our curriculum.  This workshop will provide examples of interdisciplinary lessons and storytelling that maintain musical integrity through the creative process.  We will explore concepts from multiple subject areas, but always with a primary focus on process teaching, elemental music theory, and student-centered musical experiences.  We will also experience the full potential of the Orff approach as we learn some of my students’ favorite “fun but challenging” games and use various media to develop their musical elements in creative contexts.
