Caribbean Music Pedagogy Workshop 

Registration for this summer's Caribbean Music Pedagogy Workshops is now open! In these week-long professional development workshops, educators will learn how to teach Caribbean music using a Caribbean (as opposed to Euro-American) framework. Workshops will take place in the New Orleans, NYC, Boston, and D.C. areas. For more information or to register, visit the Caribbean Music Pedagogy Workshop page on our website. 

About the Workshop
This is a week-long professional development workshop for music educators who aim to teach topics in Caribbean music using a Caribbean (as opposed to Euro-American) framework. This introductory course will expose educators to Caribbean history and culture broadly speaking, as well as important musical concepts in the study of Caribbean music. Resources for teaching (i.e. music, readings, and classroom exercises) will be made available, as well as suggestions for curriculum development and how to meet national standards. Lessons will center on three topics: (1) Concepts in Vocal and Rhythmic Pedagogy in the Caribbean; (2) Caribbean Music History; (3) Strategies & Resources for Teaching Caribbean Music in the Diaspora. Over the five days of instruction, participants will explore (and rethink) musical concepts common throughout the region, gain an understanding and appreciation for the interconnectedness of the Caribbean region as a whole, and explore music in select countries including Trinidad and Tobago and Cuba. 

Tuition and Fees 
Tuition is $300. A $50 non-refundable registration fee is included in the course tuition. 

Registration Deadline 
For regular registration, all tuition and fees must be received by June 1, 2017. For more information or to register, visit the Caribbean Music Pedagogy Workshop page on our website.
