This unit will provide students with an opportunity to develop knowledge of, and teaching skills relating to significant music education methods. Students will focus on a number of internationally recognised approaches to teaching music, for example those developed by Kodaly and Orff, as well as more recent innovations from the 20th and 21st centuries. Students will participate in learning experiences which develop their musical knowledge and are suitable for application to a variety of teaching situations, especially classroom teaching.
