Teaching musically

"We have to stop thinking of education as a gift that we give to our students. Education as much as creativity is something that needs to be shared. If there is no reciprocity, then it is not a fully meaningful experience"
Ryan Burwell shares the elements of music that have resonated most richly with him and his students, and will suggest ways of applying these elements to teaching practice. Focusing on the skills of improvisation and composition, he will try to convince you that curriculum design needs to be thought of like the pentatonic scale, and that you don't need to be a music teacher to teach musically.
Very interesting talk.
