September 14, 2019  A Few of My Favorite Things
Location: Texas A&M Commerce
Creating melodies with dice!  Composing original drum pieces with building blocks!  Merging movement and games!  When working with older students, we need to keep in mind that they like to work with peers, have artistic input, and be involved in active music making.  Come learn lesson ideas and hands-on musical experiences that have worked in my classroom with my students and bring back ideas you can use in your classroom.
