General Information
The primary goal of this institute is to provide new and experienced teachers with opportunities to learn and practice the skills needed to create, perform, and integrate music into the elementary curriculum. This course will emphasize the intrinsic value of music and its ability to help students analyze, synthesize, and evaluate ideas, recognize the cultural contribution of music to society, and make connections between concepts and across subjects.

Participants will be engaged in practical, hands-on activities and experiences that promote the development of musical knowledge and skill, while gaining a better understanding of major theories and philosophies related to learning music in childhood. They will also learn how to develop integrated curriculum in ways that account for state and national learning standards. No prior musical ability is required.
