Thinking about engaging a broad range of musics in our classrooms can be difficult to navigate. Using Ewe (Ghanaian) drumming and dancing as an example, this workshop will explore some of the challenges of teaching music that are perhaps less familiar. Together,we will develop an approach to thinking about issues such as transmission practices, language, and context to create a “world” music pedagogy rooted in ethical practice. This workshop may be taken for credit: MUS 891 sec. 308 [1 credit].
Dates:All Colloquium events are held from 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm. Please see the websites below for a current schedule.
