Event Description

Literacy is collective set of skills that every independent musician wants and needs. This set includes aural skills, transition to visual notation, note translation, fluent sight reading and music theory as it relates to string instruments. Ideally, ability development is based on prior knowledge and skill and then evolves into theoretical understanding. Often this is not the case.

This course explores new concepts, sequences, and materials for teaching these skills to string students in a child-oriented sequence. Discussions include learning sequences that foster all aspects of literacy for the studio or classroom student.Extensive materials and resources will be shared and studied. 

Price: $225.00

0 enrolled out of 20 maximum.
