Ms. Lowe will take us through a sequential learning process that guides students to hear with understanding. The music learning process is similar to the language learning model of: listen, speak/perform, think/improvise, read and write. The workshop will include singing, chanting, improvisation, rhythm and solfege activities, and is suitable for those who teach children as well as those who teach adults.
