#var:page_name# cover

Professional Development workshop open to Teachers, Parents, Community Members.

Students with dyslexia do not have flat learning profiles. While language-based learning may be difficult for these students, they often have a strong propensity towards learning music. And, the good news is, learning music doesn’t need to begin with reading it. In fact, it ’s better to start with just listening to music, playing it, and moving musically. In this workshop, Drew Holgate, 5th grade teacher in our Triad Academy Division and professional musician will engage workshop participants in a day dedicated to learning about teaching music to students with dyslexia. Participants will learn techniques to get students making music right away, multisensory techniques to help them learn and connect patterns, and motivational techniques that focus on student choice and passion.

This workshop will use guitar, voice, and rhythm instruments to convey ideas and techniques that are broadly applicable to music instruction. Have a guitar? Bring it - no experience necessary! Don't have one - we've got you covered!
