The University of Washington and the Smithsonian Institute present the tenth annual Workshop in World Music Pedagogy,  June 25-29 at the School of Music.

Participants in the intensive course 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 include a diverse mix of educators, ethnomusicologists, and artist musicians. 

This year, the course also includes the launch of an inaugural seminar on “Teaching World Music in Higher Education.”  To learn more visit https://www.worldmusicpedagogy.com
