Need curriculum for teaching the creative stuff?
Have favorite resources to share?
- Over the next few months, I’d love your help in compiling a list of resources for teaching music creativity. My own experience has been that it is difficult to find adequate materials in the areas of improvisation and composition curricula, and I would love to know about resources you use to inspire your students in their music creativity! I will share some of my favorites. As you can see, many of them are my own, developed for use in my own teaching and then published for others. They have been successful! But, I would really value your suggestions as well! Please add your favorites by comment, and I will amend the list as we go!
Here’s just a start…as I am on vacation as I write this, so I may be able to add more upon returning to my studio after the New Year!
