MMED 648 Middle School Classroom & Choral Music



3 credits 45.0 hours
600 level graduate course

This class is a study of middle school students: a presentation of units, lessons, activities and materials which provide active involvement for students in grades 5 through 8. Development of music reading skills will be addressed, as well as an understanding of musical form and instrumentation. Age appropriate songs, movement and dance, improvisation, games, active listening to music in a variety of styles, as well as activities incorporating music theatre and drama will be included. New choral music from various publishing companies will be explored as well as strategies for working with boys’ changing voices. This course provides practical approaches to improving student attitudes toward music in the classroom at this challenging yet exciting age of student maturation.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
