Developing Independent Musicians
Dr. Carol Krueger, Valdosta State University
July 15-17, 2019
Join Dr. Carol Krueger as she provides a practical, sequential, evidence-based approach to developing students who are truly musically literate. Working from the premise that singers learn musical skills in much the same order as they do language skills, participants will explore how we ‘learn’ music through hearing and imitating patterns before reading (translating notation into sound) and writing (translating sound into notation). Specific techniques for developing reading readiness, fluency, audiation, musical memory, dictation, improvisation, elementary composition and application of literacy skills to choral literature will be addressed. Participants will receive certificates of completion for 21 contact hours with this workshop.
