A Musical Recipe for Success


Colorful music notes background isolated on white


In this webinar, you will learn how one simple rhythm and melody can be developed to create a suite of musical experiences that will prove enjoyable for teachers and students alike.

If you are looking for a simple recipe to help you deliver the music curriculum with confidence and ease, this workshop is for you.

The basic ingredients for this recipe include one rhythm exercise, one simple melody, a bunch of creative ideas and a little regular practice in the classroom.  When properly combined, these ingredients become a multi-tool that will equip you to explore teaching the musical concepts of pitch, dynamics, timbre, rhythm, beat and pulse in a way that yields positive results.

During this practical workshop, participants will be taught how to produce their multi-tool. Instructions will be simply explained, demonstrated and repeated sufficiently for effective learning. Lots of tips and suggestions will also be given on the various ways the multi-tool can be further utilised for group performances and team exercises in class.
