Calling all K-6 Music Teachers! Join Anita Perlau, from the University of Alberta, for two great sessions all in one morning!
9:00- 10:30 Teaching Elementary Music Through Singing, Moving and Playing

10:45-12:15 - Developing Part Sing Singing in harmony is a skill that begins in the primary grades with learning to hear one part and sing another. Through a developmental sequence of how to teach music in parts, Anita will share songs and activities to help your students develop their confidence and independence as singers.
