Teaching Music Lessons to Children in Local Schools|
Fall 2021 not offered
|This course may be repeated for credit.|
|Course Cluster and Certificates: Service Learning|
This is a service-learning course. Wesleyan students will teach private and small group music lessons to local children remotely. These sessions will be augmented by a weekly classroom session in which readings and the student teachers' journals will be discussed. Some of the Wesleyan Department of Music's private lesson instructors will visit to answer questions and guide the student teachers through the issues, musical and extra-musical, that the lessons will raise.
Written assignments will include responses to weekly readings, regular journal entries, and an end-of-semester paper. There will also be a recital by the school children at the end of the semester.
