STME 615 Fiddling: How to Introduce Folk Styles Into Your Classroom

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

This course is designed for the string educator looking for something different to bring to their classroom! Participants will develop strategies to learn tunes by ear, then use those same strategies to learn chords and accompaniment techniques. Participants will also learn basic arranging skills and how to arrange in a group. Participants will leave with the skill set to create an environment where orchestras are excited to put away the sheet music, take ownership of their music-making, and have fun in the process! This class will culminate with a public performance. Violin/Viola/Cello players are welcome and all participants will need to bring their own instrument.

This course may be completed 2 times for credit.
