Music in the Schools (Summer Theme)

Instructor Name: 
Susan Booth Larson
Course Description: 

The Music in the Schools capstone introduces elementary aged children involved in SUN (Schools Uniting Neighborhoods) programs to musical games, concepts, instruments, and songs from various cultures around the world.  Basic educational teaching strategies, child development concepts, and pedagogical techniques are developed and then translated by PSU students into fun, interactive lessons that, hopefully, will inspire the children, themselves representing various cultures, to go further into learning about music.  The AM class works at the SUN program based at Alice Ott Middle School and the PM class works at the SUN program based at Grout Elementary School.  Some additional time outside of class hours will be scheduled according to the PSU students' schedules and individual areas of interest.
