Listen, Hear, Play is based on recent research by Lucy Green in the UK that looked at applying informal approaches based on popular music pedagogies in one to one instrumental lessons. Her findings ask whether we spend enough time supporting our students with learning music by ear and what the implications might be if we dig a little deeper into how we learn aurally. This practical workshop will help you to discover your preferred aural learning style and devise strategies to support your kids with how to become successful aural learners. Classroom workshopping is a whole class approach to large group music-making, composing and improvising. Grounded in non-formal teaching pedagogies, musical ideas and development originate from within the group with the teacher as musical leader helping to shape and develop the music as it evolves. Classroom workshopping scaffolds kids through from instrumental skills-building to writing their own music by increasing confidence to try out ideas and create an ethos where it's OK if it doesn't sound perfect straight away.
