This course is designed for teachers to integrate music into the classroom through fun and simple techniques, learning basic concepts found in music while designing a series of hands-on indigenous inspired instruments made from reusable materials to experiment on and compose rhythms with. By providing a global immersion into the study and production of music, participants can use their personal experiences, the diverse culture of the school’s student body and reference numerous compositions from around the world as effective ways to explore critical consciousness for a deeper understanding of the school and the global community. Participants will learn various strategies for differentiating instruction providing them with the tools to create and present achievable equitable projects, specifically designed to reach a wide scope of learning modalities and cultural differences that make them better educators, leaders, and artists. Through guided art instruction, participants create their multicultural instruments integrating differentiated instruction into various learning modalities and multiple subject areas. The sessions highlight cultures around the world, musical influences, exploration of sound and theory, and musical writing and presentation. Sessions include: 1). Multicultural Introduction to Music 2). Asian and Middle Eastern Music 3). African and Latin Music 4). Group Studio Art and Composition.
