Concerts and performances are the most fundamental and important elements of a music program. They provide an opportunity to showcase students’ talents and musicianship to parents, administrators, and the larger community. Additionally, choosing the right music and teaching concepts takes careful planning, preparation, and assessment. This course will focus on planning an entire concert cycle, including repertoire selection, score analysis, warm-ups, skills sheets, and teaching activities. Additional coursework will focus on designing lessons and activities that complement the music to provide a deeper learning experience for students.
