Innovative Online Teaching in Special Music Education
Many students with exceptionalities benefit from having their music lessons virtually, but it can be difficult to replicate the engagement of in-person learning. The aim of this session is to highlight some interactive activities that can be used to meet pedagogical goals with your students in fun and engaging ways in a virtual setting. Specific activities for warmups, music appreciation and composition will be presented. The webinar will be filled with suggestions and practical examples to ensure an enjoyable music lesson for both teacher and student!
