EDE 665 Introduction to Keyboard for Classroom Teachers
3 Lecture Hours; 1 Conference Hour; 4 Credits
Designed for students who are non-music majors, the course will prepare childhood classroom teachers to use a keyboard in class through accompanying children's songs and to play simple chord progressions for movement. Students will be introduced to music reading and notation; the rudiments of music (meters, major and minor scales, key signatures, intervals); chord construction and progression; sight-singing and simple song harmonization; and creative activities through improvisation. In addition to learning musical knowledge and developing skills, students will have opportunities to investigate different ways to integrate musical knowledge and skills into the childhood curriculum.
Prerequisite: Matriculation in Sequence I of the Graduate Elementary Education Program
