Pasadena Conservatory of Music - 2007

Funded in March, 2007: $20000 for 2 years
Dana funds will be used for advanced professional training for faculty members working in The Conservatory's outreach programs in public schools in Pasadena.  The instructors will attend two-week certification programs in Orff-Schulwerk or Kodaly in summer 2007, to hone and advance their own skills and knowledge.  They will also attend the Orff-Schulwerk Annual National Conference.  The training sessions in Orff and Kodaly provide intensive training in the methodologies and result in certification. Each curriculum has three levels. Funding will also be used to present a weeklong seminar at the Conservatory in early childhood music education.
