Music educators must accept the challenge of educating the public. Educating the parents of our students in the value of music education is equally as important as the education we do in the classroom. Dr. Pearson will discuss important research about why music should be a part of every child s education. 7:00-8:30 p.m. Clinic Broadmoor F Creating a Culture Of Music Literacy n Our Colorado Choirs: Curricula Standardization And ntegration Jill Burleson Burgett, Clinician Presiding: John arner, ocal Council Chair The purpose of this session is to initiate a dialogue within our choral education community about ways in which we can bring a standardized approach to teaching music literacy to singers in our school choirs. While students are receiving instruction in music literacy, systems, materials, and approaches used vary significantly from school to school, even in schools from within the same district. This session addresses the need for system-wide articulation regarding music literacy curricula, standardization of solfege systems, counting and sight singing methods used by our choirs, and ways in which we can integrate them on a more global level within our state. Suggestions will be made not only for integrating the curricula vertically throughout the school district, but also horizontal alignment with peer institutions within the district, including horizontal alignment between districts state-wide. Rationale will be presented addressing the need for standardization, along with suggested strategies for the successful implementation of such programs. 8

Teaching with lead sheets in the band and orchestra rehearsal to improve sight-reading and ensemble-wide comprehension Erik Johnson and Brian Floyd, Clinicians Presiding: Joe Martin, University of Denver This session s goal will be to demonstrate how to create and use one-page lead sheets as a tool to increase full-ensemble engagement and individual understanding of a wide variety of musical concepts.

Each lead sheet will contain unique elements inherent to each piece including melody, rhythm, articulation/bowing, harmony, tonality, musical terms, form, composition, and improvisation.

What 21st century skills must ensembles impart - or have we been doing this all along? How must we change, or how can we better articulate what we already teach as it relates to the musical needs of our young citizens? Join us as we continue the conversation!
