Orff Schulwerk is a music education method I first learned about in 1993, as a music education major enrolled in a class called Elementary Methods. In this class, we dove into the teaching techniques and music education methods of Kodaly, Dalcroze and Orff.
Music Monkey Jungle is a an art community where primates of all ages come together to sing, dance, play and learn through songs, dances and games that teach a myriad of lessons from multiple subjects. It’s been ingrained in my learning that in order for music to learned correctly, it should never ever EVER be taught by itself.
I've been the attendee of so many professional development workshops, seminars and conferences. A handful were specific to music education, another handful were partially relevant to the elementary classroom setting (the setting I was teaching in at those times) but the majority didn't pertain to me, my field and my specialty almost at all. It made me feel ignored, under appreciated and disposable.
