The Music Education program at Shenandoah Conservatory offers Music Making classes for area home school students during the fall and spring semesters.
Classes are designed for multi-aged classes for children ages 5 to 12 and are offered on the Shenandoah University main campus on Wednesday mornings.
Children are engaged in a wide variety of active musical experiences in each class that involve combinations of singing, playing instruments, movement, reading notation, listening, composing, and improvising. Instruction in the multi-aged classroom is differentiated to meet the needs of the students to provide the most appropriate challenge and learning experience for each student. When class size allows, we are able to provide instruction for separate upper and lower age groups for more targeted skill development.
Classes in the spring term are co-taught by an experienced master music teacher and our third-year music education students who have completed a methods course and a semester of field experience teaching in local schools. Classes in the fall are taught by the same music education majors in their last semester before student teaching full time. The faculty member then serves as a supervisor and mentor.
