Books will contain ideas and materials but will not tell a teacher “what to do with the activities.”  That is the crux of every teacher’s dilemma, coupled with how to progress step by step.  We all know how we learn music, but how can we guide our students to be musicians and acquire new ideas and understanding of concepts so they too can create music of their own? How does a teacher go about developing “process?”   How can “process” become the content of your music program?  Join us for a fun day of music making with movement, speech, singing, and instrumentation designed to develop skills and process in the planning and execution of your music program.  

“It is not what you tell your students about music that counts.  It’s what you have them do with it.”  Arnold Burckhardt
