MUSC 228.001: Principles of Teaching Music

Professor Daniel Huff

Principles of Teaching Music provides an opportunity for students to further develop their musical and pedagogical skills, curricular knowledge and techniques in teaching general, instrumental and vocal music in the context of mentored public school practicums. Topics addressed include planning for instruction, teaching and engaging students in music classrooms and assessment in theory and use.

Students will gain hands-on and experience creating lessons plans and learn how to self-assess their performance as an instructor. Including both campus classroom and public school classroom time, this course helps prepare students for student teaching the following semester.
