Pathways to Process:

Workshop Registration

Journey down many pathways to develop musicianship and literacy with the Schulwerk in your classroom. Move as the impetus to process a song with Dalcroze quick reaction activities, and use movement as a starting place for student elemental compositions. Explore using speech to develop ensemble skills, rhythmic awareness, and as the basis for improvisation. Sing and play with material suited for grades k-6 with a focus on improvisation and composition. Lessons will focus on several pathways the teacher may take to build skills with children.
