How to Use Music for Beginners?
« on: March 21, 2017, 09:36:42 AM »
Hi Everyone,

Obviously, music could be a great way to teach beginners.  But, I understand it needs to relate to the lessons, and be very focused.

Has anyone established any "home run" methods to really tie music into class, without feeling like a waste of time (like movies are seen as a waste of time)?

Opinions?  Websites? Etc.

The Koreans once gave me five minutes notice - I didn't know what to do with the extra time.

What are you trying to teach? 

  • Pronunciation
    Syntax
    Reading
    Fluency / Automaticity (S & R)
    Academic Vocab
    Content

Music can have many uses in teaching.
