MUSIC LEARNING TREE

INTERNATIONAL TRAINING COURSE 2021-2022

Music Learning Tree was born after many years of hard work, passion and research.

It combines my experiences with groups of children aged 0-5, with body music, music therapy and neuro music.

In this course, you will start learning from important reference theories (such as Gordon’s Music Learning Theory), to arrive at practical suggestions and strategies that you will be able to apply to your lessons. We will study, sing and dance together, bringing real examples and activities to the centre of our interest.

During my courses my priority is to share methods and ideas that can really help you to run your classes whilst you develop your unique teaching style.

Are you ready to find out more?

IS THIS YOU?

– you love being a teacher and the idea of doing this job better and better makes you happy and full of energy

– you are looking for a training course that gives you a solid foundation to work with your students 

– you like to deepen your understanding of music education to connect more with your students

– you have been teaching for a while, have attended courses and workshops but feel like you want to add something new and fresh to your approach

– you like to work with groups of children or teenagers in different contexts, being a music facilitator makes you happy

GREAT! SO YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!

I’m really happy to present you Music Learning Tree 2021-2022, the international course that will help you to build your unique approach in music education, this year in its new edition full of surprises!

IF YOU ARE HERE YOU PROBABLY THINK THAT:

– music doesn’t have to be simple to be taught to children

– each child has similar but different learning times and you’re now ready to follow an approach that can support all of them

– learning music in itself is fundamental to a child’s development

– creativity and improvisation should be part of the educational curriculum of a music teacher

– singing the usual children’s songs can be very repetitive and it’s time for you to rediscover your own musicality and create a richer repertoire of songs and activities

Following the most recent research and studies done in music education, I’ve created a teaching approach that can satisfy the needs of us teachers as much as our student’s ones. Teaching is hard work but it can also be fun and fulfilling!

The secret lies in following the learning path of each child, without forgetting the beauty and playfulness of music.

READY TO START A NEW JOURNEY INTO MUSIC EDUCATION?

I think that being a music teacher does not only mean having a large repertoire of songs and activities but above all is about knowing the LEARNING PROCESS of our students in order to follow their needs.

This course will teach you how to plan your sessions according to the correct learning sequence in order to guide your students in a wonderful musical journey made of discovery, listening, sharing and playing.

DO YOU AGREE?

– Teaching music does not mean singing only songs for children but it’s researching how to develop the musicality of our students

– Knowing the theory of the learning process is as important as the practical part of the lessons

– Managing the group in an easy and fun way is fundamental to work with parents and children

– Teaching music does not mean only using backing tracks but learning how to create a musical dialogue with our students and become guides able to share our knowledge of music in an engaging way.

IF YOU AGREED LET’S CONTINUE!

DISCOVER MUSIC LEARNING TREE

This training course stems from the experience in music education that I’ve developed in different parts of Europe over the last 18 years.

In this course I have enclosed many ideas, studies and research done in the field of music education. At the base, there is a great passion for sharing and teaching.

We will spend 6 months together so we will have time to deepen the contents of the course and learn without rush, integrating new concepts into your teaching approach.

The course takes place entirely online, with my constant presence. You’ll also have the possibility of sharing your path with a wonderful community of teachers from different parts of the world.

We will start in November 2021 and as you study you can apply the things you will learn with your students, sharing your experiences with me and the rest of the group.

THE COURSE

HERE’S WHAT I’VE PLANNED FOR YOU

The course is divided into two different paths: you can choose the course EARLY CHILDHOOD to teach children 0-5, the course BODY MUSIC FOR CHILDREN, to teach children older than 4 and teenagers or decide to take them both at the same time. 

  • EARLY CHILDHOOD to teach children 0-5
  • BODY MUSIC FOR CHILDREN to teach children older than 4 and teenagers

AND MORE…

  •  monthly masterclasses, with international experts coming from the world of music education (Brazil, Italy, UK…)
  •  singing, improvisation and mindfulness lessons, to become more aware of your voice and keep it healthy even after many hours of work 
  •  access to a dedicated Facebook group where you can meet the other participants of the group and share your learning path
  • possibility of an internship in London
  • optional mentoring and supervision post-course 

“I was initially drawn to Tiziana by seeing her in action with her classes. Tiziana’s engagement with the children, her intentionality in music education and inclusion of the caregivers in the classes were all an inspiration for my own learning. The International Training Course that I enrolled in delivered and has been foundational for my development as a learner, teacher, and professional in opening my own studio. As with any study – you will receive out of it what you put into it. Putting into practice what I was learning allowed the theory to be played out and complete the learning cycle over and over again with the more practice I did! Tiziana is quick to reply to questions and give feedback also in the Facebook chats.”

A guide, a journey, a mine of ideas… I am a music entertainer for children and I have no musical knowledge as a music teacher but thanks to this course I was able to build fantastic body music activities for children in nurseries and primary school. Written, explained and accompanied by videos where Tiziana’s great competence makes the webinar accessible to all… Highly recommended!”

THIS IS ME!

My name is Tiziana and my greatest passion is research in music education. I am a pianist and after my piano diploma I’ve deepened my knowledge in education by studying Gordon’s Music Learning Theory, music therapy and body music. Over the years I have also developed other interests including improv theatre, Soundpainting and British Sign Language.

MONTHLY MASTERCLASS WITH INTERNATIONAL TEACHERS
