Demonstration of Kansas Music Teacher Standards
Kansas Music Standard #4: The teacher of music has skills in reading and writing music.
- The teacher can develop and use criteria for evaluating and selecting materials for reading and writing musical compositions.
- The teacher conducts from a variety of scores, reading multiple staves, transpositions, clefs, and contemporary notation.
- The teacher performs music notation at sight vocally and instrumentally.
- The teacher notates music from aural sources
My experience as an accompanist has allowed me to view different types of scores and makes me read and play music on sight. This skill correlates with my teaching standards. The link is to a lesson plan on how to teach beginning students to transcribe music. Another example of my evaluative decisions is a critique and catalog for major solo choral repertoire books for beginning singers. I also created an activity and lesson plan to help students review their musical notes on a keyboard.
