Online Song Reading Sessions

    
Online Song Reading Sessions, like their counterpart at conferences, are designed to introduce teachers to song literature for their students, with the focus on singing through a packet of songs, rather than on pedagogy. Each of these 10 Online Song Reading Sessions presents a packet of 12 songs targeted to teacher needs, with only brief comments about the songs. Choose Song Reading Sessions of interest, and sign up for as many as you like. Songs are from the Come Children Sing Institute SONG LIBRARY, and composed by Mary Ellen Pinzino. Song packets within the SONG LIBRARY provide for you to see notation, hear each song, download, and print for classroom use. You are allotted 1 week to complete each 1-hour Song Reading Workshop, and you will have full access to the SONG LIBRARY and to all of the many materials of the Online Teacher Education Center (OTEC) for the week’s duration. Each Song Reading Session is just $10. Satisfactory completion of each hour of professional development will be determined by interactive materials and website tracking of your involvement in required materials. A certificate for 1 hour of online professional development from the Come Children Sing Institute will be awarded upon completion of each.

Song Reading Sessions can be taken in any order, and each session begins when you register. Mix and match Song Reading Sessions for professional development hours, with the option of accumulating 5 or 10 hours for .5 or 1 CEU from Indiana University/Purdue University, Indianapolis. Song Reading Sessions are listed below. Additional online courses and workshops for professional development hours, CEUs, or graduate credit are available here.

[There is no overlap between songs in the various Song Reading Sessions, though many songs can be used across ages, stages, and settings.]

Songs and Chants Without Words

Songs and Chants Without Words

Application: All Ages

1 Hr

$10

1 Professional Development Hour

These songs and chants without words introduce children to various tonalities and meters, providing a “sound environment” for all music learning. Songs and chants can be used with very young children, school-aged children, and even adults to develop a sense of tonality and meter, the foundation of all music learning. Ongoing experience with various tonalities and meters through songs and chants without words primes children for in-tune and in-rhythm singing, and prepares them for the many songs in various tonalities and meters presented in OTEC Song Reading Sessions.
