Home > Departments > Rowan Community Music School > 2021 Spring Classes and Workshops > First Steps in Music Certification Course

This course provides a bridge from research to practice by demonstrating how Dr. Feierabend's First Steps in Music, a curriculum rich in children's songs, rhymes, games and dances can develop musical intelligence, singing and movement skills and expressive sensitivities. A model of parents and children playing together in the years from birth to 3 will be presented as well as a curriculum for 3 to 8 year old children in classroom settings.

Instruction will be delivered live, online in a virtual format and will not be recorded.
24 Professional development hours are available. 
Please Note for FAME Certification: successful completion of all assignments and the final exam are required. Students missing more than 2 hours, total, of online engagement will not receive FAME certification and PD hours will be adjusted accordingly.
