Full STEAM Ahead
From Lorenzby Abigail Blair and Kathryn Finch
Full STEAM Ahead is full of lessons to turn your music room into a place where imagination and creativity are not just encouraged, but essential. The lessons are divided into three sections: The Music Room as a Makerspace – Let your students' imaginations go wild as they build shakers, tell stories with apps and green screens, and learn all the elements that go into a Broadway musical. Coding the Music Room – With a few tech tools, your students will compose melodies and variations, explore modes, and add sound effects to stories. Digital Audio Workstations – Introduce your musicians to modern composition tools they can use to explore form, design sound, compose their own music, and unlock the mysteries of the synthesizer. The key to this book's effectiveness is that it trains you as a STEAM teacher today, while detailing well-structured lessons for your students to help them become the empathetic creators of tomorrow.
