MUSC 6509 Elementary Musical Performance

Prerequisite: Admission to the MMEd or MAT in Music Education program. This course will include the study of children’s vocal and motor control development, and issues relating to the development of age-appropriate musical performance opportunities for elementary aged children. This semester we will focus particularly on creating performance opportunities that enhance the typical elementary music education curriculum and meet the National Standards (NS) and the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS). Students will develop and improve their skills in performance technology (such as soundboards and microphones), performance logistics (such as sets, costumes and staging), and teaching performance (such as singing, moving/dancing, and acting).
