How I Teach: Music


How I Teach Music: ⁣⁣⁣
1️⃣ Widely ⁣⁣⁣
We spread a wide musical feast, because exposure to music is beneficial holistically, mentally, emotionally, intellectually, and even physically. ⁣⁣⁣
The Music Lessons We Include: ⁣⁣
🎼 Hymn Study⁣⁣⁣
🪕 Folk Songs ⁣⁣⁣
🎻 Composer Study⁣⁣⁣
🩰 Ballet⁣⁣⁣
🎵 Music Theory⁣⁣⁣
🥁 Musical History & Survey⁣⁣⁣
🎧 Contemporary Music Appreciation & Survey ⁣⁣⁣
🎤 We also included Solfa for many years.⁣⁣
We use a wide variety of resources. ⁣⁣⁣
2️⃣ Beyond Mason’s Table ⁣⁣⁣
We spread the dishes in a wide musical feast that Mason spread at hers, and I’m so grateful that she introduced me to these. ⁣⁣⁣
But, we also add dishes that Mason missed, such as Ballet, and we go beyond what she considered “Music Appreciation” and formalize Music History and Survey. ⁣⁣⁣
This is because I know the impact music has had upon culture and history, and I know that it is important to see it in its context, after building a foundation of enjoyment. ⁣⁣
We also include Contemporary Music, because our age has much to offer and we won’t miss it. ⁣⁣⁣
3️⃣ Gently ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
My goal is exposure, appreciation, and contextual understanding. ⁣⁣⁣
💡 Here’s How That Looks: ⁣⁣⁣
*Weekly Lessons:⁣⁣⁣
Folk Songs⁣⁣⁣
These are simple, rich, and pack a punch for such short lessons. ⁣⁣⁣
*Weekly Lessons Alternating Between: ⁣⁣⁣
Music History ⁣⁣⁣
Music Theory ⁣⁣⁣
These are gentl⁣e and layered.
*One Term:⁣⁣⁣
Ballet & Contemporary - for this I simply replace another music lesson ⁣⁣⁣
