MUS 3405 Music In The Elementary Classroom (2 credits)
In order to meet the teacher licensure rule most effectively, this course provides a hands-on experience with the discipline of music. As the Creative Expressions course (ED 3301) offers philosophical and practical bases for including arts in the elementary classroom, this course gives students the opportunity to learn specific vocal and instrumental techniques that can enhance aesthetically both the academic experiences and the learning environment in the classroom. Nonperformance-based musical activities are also introduced to display the interconnectedness of music to other subject areas. Prerequisite: Music reading experience or MUS 1130.
