PRVD 930: Smithsonian Folkways World Music Pedagogy (3 credits)

West Virginia University’s School of Music will team up with Smithsonian Folkways for its third certification course in World Music Pedagogy. Participants will engage with world music in daily workshops featuring several musical cultures including Appalachia, Australia, Brazil, and Central Java, and West Africa led by WVU faculty and guest artists. Through this partnership with Smithsonian Folkways, teachers will develop a foundation in world music pedagogy and be introduced to an extensive archive of audio, video, print, and ethnographic resources created to support curricular innovation that connects music programs with the vibrant local and global musical cultures in their surrounding communities.
For those seeking certification in world music pedagogy, the development of a Music Culture Curricular Unit (MCCU) Project is a required and critical component of the course. (See samples at Participants will design a curricular experience for a specific age level, class type, or ensemble. The intention of the MCCU is to apply the principles and practices of world music pedagogy in projects that feature the rich multicultural resources available from Smithsonian Folkways.
Teachers successfully completing all course requirements will receive certification from the Smithsonian Institute documenting specialization in world music pedagogy.
