In this episode I'm defining "active music making" and what it means for your teaching sequence and your students' experience. None of this belongs to just one pedagogical approach, but is a way of thinking and teaching that gets beyond covering concepts and enables your students to be active participants in your classroom.
In this episode, I'll talk all about:
- the memories I have of my own elementary music experience and why it's important.
- why exploration, discovery, and extension are my words of choice for the learning sequence.
- why I think you should get away from just "covering" concepts in your classroom.
