general music curriculum
Date: March 1, 2014
I am starting a brand new high school general music class for an alternative school. We have varing learning styles and lots of students who need 1 on 1 attention, some who get bored, off task, on their cell phones, listening to youtube. Most of these students don't do group activities like trying to put a guitar ensemble together or a drumming curcle. They seem to thrive on individual work. However, if you are not helping them along, they can get easily distracted and go off task. When one goes off task, the rest of them feel they can do the same. They feed off each other. We have guitars, djembes, a few keyboards, recorders and some african instruments. Some love recording and hopefully we will get some funding to buy some equipment to put a small recording studio there. I have no budget, but I need ideas, method books, websites for recording, making beats, raps, stuff like that. Thanks for your time!!!
