Reply To: Band teacher to add classroom music in Sept.
If you can do I would recommend taking an Orff or Kodaly class this summer. These will give you the tools to successfully teach the elementary classes.
If you can I would suggest the following videos.
First Steps in Music: The Lectures (5 DVDs) https://www.giamusic.com/search_details.cfm?title_id=19691
First Steps in Music: In Action https://www.giamusic.com/search_details.cfm?title_id=23151
There is a DVD coming out any time now on Conversational Solfege.
These are basically in service in a dvd packages.
