Chapter Workshop

New York & Michigan GIML GIML

March 20, 2021

Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often have difficulty in the areas of cognition, communication, and socialization. During this workshop we will explore these three areas and discuss how to assist students as they access music making spaces. To accomplish this, we will engage in games and activities that can be used for students with and without ASD in inclusive or self-contained settings.

Episode #5

Keys to Music Learning Podcast

How does one learn music? In today’s episode, answers to this question by comparing the process of music learning to the process of language learning. This sequential learning is a key to music learning, because by knowing how our students learn, we can sequence instruction to lead them through listening, performing, improvising, reading, and writing music with understanding.
