These courses in Instrumental Music, Parts 1 and 2 prepare candidates to teach beginning and more advanced instrumental music in elementary and/or secondary schools or other settings. Candidates will learn to play one woodwind, brass, and string instrument, multiple percussion instruments and will explore the guitar and ukulele. Instrumental techniques, pedagogy, conducting, repertoire selection, score preparation, composition, arranging, beginning improvisation and working with current music technology will help support educators who are new and those who want to delve deeper into the teaching and learning of instrumental music.

These courses are  offered as Ontario Additional Qualifications or as unique certificate programs without AQ designation

The courses in Instrumental Music are programmed as 60-hour (10-day) intensive courses in the summer over three weeks to allow days off for completion of independent work. Candidates complete some components online and independently. We provide a blended model consisting of 10 days of face-to-face instruction with some space in the schedule to allow for completion of individual assignments, online work, and instrumental practice.
