With an abundant choice of music, what ‘tools’ do you rely on when selecting your teaching repertoire?
“Good nursery and day care centers choose equipment such as toys, books, furniture, and playground apparatus with great care. In this they consider the stages of child development, the abilities and skills of children, learning goals and the formation of good taste. A learning toy of music is the song and it should be selected with as much care as a nursery school toy.” (Donna Wood, early childhood music expert)
Like a nutritionist, a pharmacist or a designer, piano teachers need to know what pedagogical principles guide and inform their teaching via key, strategic, effective repertoire to attain the musical outcomes.
Join Julie in her session where she will be revealing the tools and sharing her repertoire bank and creative ways of teaching them.
FOR SINGAPOREANS ONLY
This workshop series is supported under UTAP for 50% course fee support.
National Instructors and Coaches Association (NICA) was formed by the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) to be the collective voice to support freelance coaches and instructors from sports, outdoor learning and adventure, visual and performing arts, fitness, wellness, and enrichment, to strengthen skills, standards and opportunities.
In supporting NICA members with skills deepening programmes at the Academy, NICA members enjoy lower course and conference fees through the Union Training Assistance Programme (UTAP) which provides 50% subsidy of the balance unfunded course/conference fee, up to $250 or $500 (for NTUC union members aged 40 and above).*
