Teaching Videos

These videos were taped earlier this year in a regular music classroom, and are part of a “School Curriculum Guide” project that is under development. This project is intended to help teachers learn the “how” and the “what” of teaching music.

The videos are being offered as an experiment. We plan to post the first two videos this week. If these are helpful for you, please let us know, and we will continue to post these videos in the coming weeks. Please feel free to share this with anyone who might have interest.

These videos are simply a music classroom in action. Teachers might find these helpful as assignments; parents might consider these as either a family activity or homework. The scope of each lesson is included at the bottom of the page.
