The day-long Wintergrass Teacher Training Seminar presents a fun, interesting and innovative way to motivate and teach students! This interactive, “hands-on” seminar will provide educational information on American roots music, share teaching and motivation approaches using music and dance, and provide lesson plans and resources for utilizing bluegrass/Americana music in the classroom. Discover strategies to increase student motivation to learn, provide cultural awareness, promote music appreciation and engage students with different learning abilities and diverse backgrounds.
The course will include sessions on motivational theory and practice in an educational setting, brain research, using bluegrass/Americana music to connect with learners, an overview of bluegrass music history, utilizing bluegrass to meet educational performance standards, case studies for cross-discipline learning, learning to play a song on an instrument (attendees will choose from banjo, mandolin or guitar), history of clogging including a live demo and interactive clogging instruction, bluegrass vocal harmony structure, interaction with acoustic/bluegrass music students at the Wintergrass Youth Academy, and private live bluegrass/Americana music performances by top national artists.
