  • Category: AQ
  • Region: GTA
  • Topic: Arts
  • Grades: Intermediate (grades 7-10), Senior (grades 11-12)

Part 1 – With a focus on the intermediate /senior level, this course begins to develop the strategies and skills necessary for the teaching of instrumental music including: knowledge of brass, woodwind, conducting, score-reading and transposition, lesson planning, examination of current resources, evaluation, program organization, and varied approaches to music learning. Creativity, critical thinking and problem solving are connected to The Ontario Learning Expectations through a series of workshops with guest artists.

Part 2 – This course continues to develop the skills and strategies necessary for the teaching of instrumental music. In addition to reinforcing the brass and woodwind strategies covered in Part 1, participants develop skills in teaching/playing different instruments. Strings, percussion, and guitar are also revisited in more depth. An emphasis is placed on score reading, conducting, reading, transposition, the identification and solving of musical problems in the rehearsal setting, as well as the development of lessons and units of study. Candidates are encouraged to investigate a variety of resources and repertoire suitable to the age and ability levels of their students in the local school setting.

Part 3 – Candidates examine the Music Curriculum holistically, and adapt it to various specific school settings from the instrumental music perspective. Research on how students learn is investigated. Readings from a variety of sources provide a methodological and philosophical foundation for developing a sound music education practice in the classroom. By the conclusion of the program, successful participants: demonstrate an understanding of music education as an important form of human expression, know Ministry of Education program guidelines and standards, select instructional strategies to suit the appropriate developmental stages of students, and design curriculum that enable students to meet both overall and specific learning expectations.
Music teachers are encouraged to become arts education leaders and advocates, both in the school and amongst members of the school community. Creativity, critical thinking and problem solving are connected to The Ontario Learning Expectations through a series of workshops with guest artists.
