Awakening the Soul: Creating Lessons to Make Connections with and For Our Students

Alice Pratt

Saturday, April 18, 2015, 10 am- 2:30 pm

It is essential, for the authentic success of our students, that we create lessons that not only address their needs as learners, but which enhance their own innate interests and talents. By doing this, we create connections that impact their learning and enhance the environment for taking them into new heights as learners.  This workshop is applicable for all students, but especially true for those who are considered more challenging to teach for a variety of reasons. I share with you lessons that I created for my urban school students that were highly successful.   In addition, I share lessons I created for work in early childhood.  The lessons are tried, tested and true, not only by my students but by the many teachers who have reported their success with their own students.  Be prepared for involvement and participation as we “play” the day away!

Breaking It Down: Tips and Tricks for making the most intimidating pieces accessible to everyone.

Kevin Brady

Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014, 10 am- 2:30 pm

Through literature, speech, body percussion, and more, we will explore, create, and even improvise our way through a very challenging instrumental piece. The focus will be on finding ways into the piece, breaking down the parts, and creating the best version of that piece for you and your students. 


Keith Terry

Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014, 9:30 am- 1:30 pm

Using the oldest instrument on the planet -- the human body -- we clap, slap, snap, step and vocalize our way through some very fun and funky, original and traditional rhythmic music.  BODY MUSIC is an effective way of internalizing rhythmic work, which enhances the development of time, timing, phrasing, listening skills, independence, coordination and ensemble awareness. We will explore a variety of rhythmic systems and concepts from around the world, including polyrhythms,crosspulses, polymeters, phasing, half time/double time, and more.  


Keith Terry is a percussionist/rhythm-dancer/educator whose artistic vision has straddled the line between music and dance for more than four decades.  He has performed and taught internationally, as well as created festivals and organizations dedicated to the art body music.  


Unfortunately, we could not film this workshop due to Keith's contractual obligations with Crosspulse.  Click on the photo for more information and video clips of his work.
