A Pedagogy of Expression: Expressing Yourself Musically in the Classroom

Saturday, January 30, 2021
11:00 AM - 11:45 AM

This workshop draws upon the work of activist-musicians to conceptualize a pedagogy of expression in music education that encourages youth to express their experiences through making music. To encourage such expression, teachers must first practice culturally responsive teaching to honor youth’s experiences. Participants will then explore ways to foster expression and develop strategies including songwriting that encourage youth to make music that reflects their realities.

This session will not be available for playback to watch at a later time.
