Fusing language acquisition with approaches to teaching music
from By: Beth Crumpler
Most language teachers will agree that songs and chants help students master another language. In addition, language teachers will agree that using movement and hands-on learning experiences, such as in total physical response strategies, also help students acquire language. Just like language teaching, music teaching includes approaches that utilize movement and communication. The two most common approaches to music instruction are the Kodaly and Orff methods, which have similarities to language instructional approaches.
