Music, Movement and Manipulatives… Oh my!!!
Currently, music education is not considered a core part of the curriculum. Therefore, students only receive music instruction once or twice a week for 30-45 minutes across the state. Generally speaking, students and fellow educators often view this class as a “break” or “unimportant”. I want to get students, for the short amount of time they have in class, more fully engaged. I want them to see that there is more to music than just singing and playing instruments. I want them to learn in different ways than just rote memorization, I plan to get them Up and Moving!
