CHERYL RYTTING, NCTM - Mindset Matters

Riverton Music in Sandy

Through recognizing our own mindset as teachers and coming to understand the mindsets of our students, we can help our students discover new and effective ways to improve and experience success in their musical growth. In this presentation, we will be exploring “mindset”. What is it? How does it help us or hold us back? Can we change it? And how can we apply what we learn about mindset to our teaching?

DR. KEVIN OLSON, NCTM - GRAMMAR, LOGIC, and RHETORIC

Riverton Music in Sandy

Coaching Young Composers in the Trivium Model. We learn in the writings of Plato that classical education incorporated what was called the trivium, which describes the function of content, process, and output in any creative endeavor. In this workshop, Dr. Olson will apply that model to the way that we can cultivate young, artistic composers in our studio, by developing skills in improvisation, notation, and problem solving in their compositions. Using a variety of student compositions as examples, this presentation will examine the ways we can encourage more students to create unique and compelling compositions.
