Event Details

The Carolinas Conductor Summer Workshop was created to fill a need for professional development in a relaxed environment outside of the regular school/academic year.


Among other things, participants can expect to re-energize for the upcoming year, gain new method and teaching practice insights, and be provided with a reading packet with additional rep lists for future performance planning. If you haven't attended a workshop with Dr. K, you are in for an amazing three days.

Helping individuals become musically literate is central to the school and church choral and instrumental curriculum. While there is much agreement about why we should teach sight singing, there is less agreement about how we should teach those skills.  Are we teaching students to be independent musicians or savvy symbol decoders?  This workshop will present real world concepts to implement a sound before symbol approach to teaching music literacy—an approach that will help students learn to read music from the inside out.

Specific techniques for developing tonal, rhythmic, and melodic reading readiness, literacy, audiation, musical memory, dictation, improvisation and elementary composition will be addressed. Music educators will also be presented with teaching strategies and techniques for integrating and applying reading skills to appropriate repertiore.
