What People Are Saying About Music Workshop:
A few students that normally don’t seem very interested in music were very eager to answer the questions and learn about classical music. The program provided differentiation in my classroom so all students could be reached through a new aspect of music.
I have noticed the kids remember what a “conductor” is after actually conducting. They were great at answering the questions from the Q and A. I was amazed at how much they retained!
Love it! I know that a sub could easily show the videos and do the followup, so it is nice to have the option to leave it for him or her. But I enjoy them so much that if I don’t need a sub, I will probably still use them periodically through the year.
Music Workshop is amazing and I would love to use it each year with my students to learn more about music education. I would highly recommend this program to all.
I presented this lesson to a group of 1st thru 5th Grade students. I also used this lesson as sub plans for two days and both subs told be it went very well. It was easy to present, and my sub with zero music knowledge said she had a blast giving the lesson.
The students always want more. They are anticipating the fun things like “Fun Facts.” During the music “Take 5” I explained about the meter and then let them connect it to the name. Then they counted out the 5 beats and told me how they were subdivided.
Music Workshop represents a strong collaboration between communities and their schools, and has created some of the most well crafted media resources for kids I’ve seen. I am thankful that the children in my school get to benefit from the additional artistic opportunities presented by Music.
In addition to having a good music program, this is a great way to supplement, and give examples that are outside of the classroom
It was easy to use and simple for me as the teacher to navigate…I have already recommended it to all the teachers in my building.
Music Workshop has been so beneficial in my music classroom this year because without a curriculum and limited supplies, free resources such as this provide interesting and informative lessons that are easily implemented in any classroom at any point in the year.
I think that Music Workshop is an excellent supplemental tool. Kids have been asking me about it because they’d like to share the information with their families.
