Online training for creative music making and singing of digitally prepared songs

Interactive music making in face-to-face and distance learning at elementary schools
in cooperation with the BMU

Online seminar to present the winning entries of the BMU competition on the topic "Between Presence and Distance - New Ways of Music Teaching"

Music lessons at a distance are a particular challenge for elementary schools:
What material is suitable so that children can actively make music at home on the screen?
How can songs be prepared for listening pleasure?
How can videos be interactively shaped by the children?
What are the musical learning effects and what added value can digital material offer in face-to-face lessons?

We will explore these questions using tried and tested practical examples. The focus is on two songs with comprehensive teaching ideas for younger and older elementary school children, which will be presented and tried out in the online training. The digital material can be used directly for the own class. In addition, the course is intended to be an impulse generator to stimulate further ideas.

The course instructor invites all participants to participate in an active exchange.
The training course is aimed primarily at music teachers at elementary and special schools, but also at teachers who do not teach the subject.
