Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the 12th Annual (2020) University of Washington's World Music Pedagogy five-day summer in-person course is postponed until Summer 2021
World Music Pedagogy:
Teaching Music/Teaching Culture
9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (CST)
Course Fee: $195
Featuring Specialists in Music Education and Ethnomusicology
Join ethnomusicologists, educators, traditional artists, and culture-bearers in a two-day webinar course, June 22-23, 2020, on World Music Pedagogy: Teaching Music/Teaching Culture. With 14 sessions over two days, participants will explore the application of diversity issues for their relevance to teaching music to children and youth in elementary and secondary schools. Course sessions will lead to the development of teaching/learning content and process via the five dimensions of World Music Pedagogy, with attention to cultural histories, contexts, and sensibilities. By stepping up attention to *culture*, the musical education of all children and youth in general music classrooms, choral and instrumental ensembles, and various other school courses can emphasize both musical and cultural understandings. This webinar will advance understandings while inviting an open exchange on questions of music, education, and culture.
* Course participants will hear from/dialogue with a diverse faculty online whose specializations include topics of (a) teaching the world’s musical cultures (WMP), (b) matters of social justice and music education, (c) issues pertinent to culturally responsive teaching in music, (d) cultural histories, contexts and meanings of songs, rhythms, and instrumental works of many cultures, and (e) pedagogical styles and strategies that meet the needs of learners of various experiences.
* Excursions into a variety of the world’s musical cultures—local *and* global--will be backed by recommendations for resources (mediated and “human” vis-à-vis culture-bearers) and pedagogical ways of attaining deeper experiences for learners of music and culture.
* Discussions will ensue on questions of music and race, indigeneity, gender and sexuality, and social activism, as well as developmentally appropriate music that fits the needs of learners from early childhood, through elementary and secondary school, and into post-secondary school settings.
* The course fee of $195 is inclusive of all 15 sessions, plus course preliminaries/preparations and post-course consultation and feedback on instructional styles and strategies. Vetted resources to be recommended for teaching/learning include recordings, video-recordings, websites, print material, and locally living culture-bearers who enhance and enrich learning of music and culture.
* Documentation of course participation and proficiency will be offered by course faculty in collaboration with the University of Washington.
