The University of Washington and the Smithsonian Institute present their annual Workshop in World Music Pedagogy  June 26-30, 2017 at the School of Music.

Registration is open for the annual summer workship in world music pedagogy offered annually by the UW and Smithsonian-Folkways. Participants in the intensive course, running June 26-30 at the School of Music, investigate ways to teach students at a variety of levels—including children, youth, and adults—about the music of the world's cultures.

Workshop participants explore teaching tools and techniques, including audio, video, print, electronic, and human resources and the use of songs, stories, movement and dance, and instrumental music on classroom instruments. Students successfully completing the course receive certification from the Smithsonian Institute documenting specialized study in world music pedagogy.

Workshop faculty, listed below, include a diverse mix of educators, ethnomusicologists, and artist musicians, including:

Patricia Shehan Campbell

Christopher Roberts  

Phyllis Byrdwell
