Creative License and the Benefits of Rule-Breaking

Friday, January 29, 2021
4:00 PM - 4:45 PM

Description
In this session we will examine how the creative process requires us to set aside traditional rules and norms in order to create space for original creation. We will explore cutting edge tools and pedagogies developed by teachers for teachers that empower students to create, perform, and connect with their community through original music creation.

Participants will understand the mentality, the process, and key pedagogical insights into exactly how to provide creative license to students without just "letting them roam free".
Learner Outcome 3
At the end of the session, participants will be given an actual creative license to explore and create for themselves for one year. This will have sustaining mental and emotional effects on them.
