Denise Gagné will present:

Cool Creations

Have fun with some easy ways to compose in your music classes.  We’ll use graphic notation cards/cubes, online tools, and simple templates and centers to get your kids creating their own rhythm and melodies! 

Folk Dances and Singing Games are FUN!!!

Kids love to play singing games and folk dances are fun for all ages! We’re going to play games and share ways to use the games to teach concepts and skills. And we’ll do some very fun folk dances that you can use to teach phrasing and form in music, or use as part of your dance curriculum.

Artie Almeida:

Sing! Move! Play!
A Potpourri of Joyful Music-Making Experiences 

Join Artie for two fast-paced sessions filled with innovative lessons and ideas! Singing, Moving, Percussion, and lots of surprises! Heavy Academics: Delivered Joyfully!

When purchasing a Musicplay Teacher's Guide or Digital Resources (as apart of workshop materials), we will endeavour to have the resources available to you at the workshop. However, if registration occurs too late, we will instead ship the resource to your free of charge.

Teachers will receive a 1 month subscription to and a handouts booklet with extensive notes from all the sessions.
