Teacher Training Workshops
Improvisation and Rhythm - Teaching to the Standards
For more information, please call Eugene Uman.
This workshop shows middle through high school teachers how to accomplish Vermont and National Standards in Improvisation and Rhythm. Teachers of earlier grade levels are also welcome. The course offers creative hands-on approaches for any instrument (including voice) from two veteran teachers.
Focus of the ProgramWe focus especially on jazz and world music applications, but these methods are applicable to any style of music. Participants learn new ideas for teaching and develop their own skills and abilities in improvisation and rhythm. Participants should bring their instruments.
