We sit down with our friends Kevin Diggins and Amanda Poon, both of whom attended Holy Names to earn a Masters of Music in Music Education with a Kodaly emphasis. They discuss how they fold the Kodaly method into their teaching in general music and elementary and middle school choir and band.
No guest this week as we check in on Olin’s favorite topic to debate: which is more important in Music education, the process or its product.
This week we re-visit general music, this time with a 3rd year teacher from the Washoe County School district in Nevada.
We sit down with Bethany Moslen, the Assistant Director of the Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh to talk about teaching special populations. Bethany has a M.Ed. in Special Education and our conversation leans towards how that affects her teaching practices as a music educator.
