What is Musical S.T.E.M.?

Posted on Feb 16, 2019 in Featured, Methods, Piano Camp

In just a few words, Musical S.T.E.M. is a curriculum for playing the piano with science, technology, engineering and math.

Have you planned your summer piano camp already?

As I mentioned in a previous post  our teaching and learning has become increasingly segregated. We separate the arts from the sciences. In fact, when we combine the two, our teaching and learning becomes much richer.

The Musical S.T.E.M resource can be used as a summer piano camp, school, studio, or after-school program. It’s that versatile!

Students play piano by rote, do experiments and learn how aspects of making music connect with the sciences.

Dissonance!

Do your students know about,

  • bending?
  • vibrations?
  • dissonance?
  • frequency?

Maybe they have heard some of these words in their science class in school. How do to these concepts relate to playing the piano?

This summer take your piano camp to a whole new dimension with Musical S.T.E.M.!
