Vita-Learn in partnership with Moosiko is offering Building a Guitar or Ukulele Program with Moosiko workshop at Dynamic Landscapes.

Looking to boost enrollment for your music program? Implement a guitar or ukulele class at your school in order to make music more accessible and fun for students of all ages. Studies show that offering relevant instruments such as guitar or ukulele attracts new students to music who often continue on to choir or band programs later. Plus guitar and ukulele are lifelong instruments that students can play long after they graduate. 
 
This workshop provides everything a music teacher or educator needs to get started and have a successful first year. We will cover: 
  • What resources you’ll need (instruments, curricula, accessories, edtech tools, etc.)
  • Curriculum and lesson plan walkthrough
  • Assessment and rubric ideas
  • Beginner intro to guitar and ukulele
  • Practice and assessment tools
  • Additional resources
Even for those who have never picked up a guitar or ukulele before, you’ll leave this workshop feeling confident in teaching these instruments to your students. 

Workshop Participants will receive:

  • 10-student licenses for Moosiko
    • Additional student licenses available separately at a discounted price.
  • Teacher account for Moosiko
  • In-Person 2.5 hour workshop with Moosiko founder and CEO, Dan Mascola
