Understanding Music

Conversational Solfege Levels 1 & 2: Spring 2022

John Feierabend's engaging, research-based method develops notational literacy by helping children understand music through the use of rhythm and solfege syllables at a conversational level in order to develop a strong sense of inner hearing.  Students become independent musical thinkers through a sequential process wherein they learn and joyfully perform music before progressing to the decoding, reading, and writing of musical thought.  This literature-driven approach allows teachers ownership over what repertoire is chosen in order to reflect their particular student population.  In this course, you will learn the philosophy behind Conversational Solfege and how to employ it in your own program right away.
Instruction will be delivered live, online in a virtual format and will not be recorded. 24 Professional Development hours are available.  
Please Note for FAME Certification: successful completion of all assignments and the final exam are required.  Students missing more than 2 hours, total, of online engagement will not receive FAME certification and PD hours will be adjusted accordingly.
