Week 2 Text: Music Together Family Favorites Songbook for Teachers pp. 78 Music Together Teaching Principles Actions, not instructions Music activities are presented in a nonformal way, without explanations or imaginary information. Children are guided into the experience o The teacher presents the song in its entirety, singing and moving in a way that invites participation. Children respond by observing and imitating with repetition. Accept and include Rather than having a constant vision of how a song activity will proceed, the teacher has a flexible response as the class experience unfolds. Everyone in class learns that they have valid music and movement ideas. They can let go of any concerns about making a mistake in class and freely experiment and play. Build relationships through music and movement Music and movement offer a means of communication that is direct and nonverbal. o A teacher might answer a child’s stomp with a skip, sing back his or her sound, or notice his or her movement and model it for the whole class. Oops! In nonformal music education for the very young, the teacher models an attitude in which musicmaking is playful and enjoyable rather than goaloriented. This sets an easygoing atmosphere and helps free others in the class from any selfconscious attempts to get things “right.” Executive function (also known as cognitive control and supervisory attentional system) are a set of cognitive processes – including: Working memory Attention control Cognitive flexibility Inhibitory control (impulse control) Approaches to learning – how children learn One of the 5 domains: o Overall classroom engagement and learning o Motivation to learn o Openness to new tasks and challenges o Opportunities to explore and experiment o Ability to make a plan of action o Imagination and creativity
