13. The [Sequential] Path is Never Straight with Anne Mileski

Choir Baton

Anne Mileski is a leading elementary music educator, podcaster, lover of all things purposeful, sequential, and joyful. Her story will make you consider what your elementary music experience was like as a child and how teaching or learning in the elementary music classroom can be so different today. Anne didn't intend to be a music educator, she was pursuing her master's in trumpet performance. But during this experience her passion for teaching young musicians was unlocked and the rest "is history." One of the things I love about Anne is how versed she is in different music learning pedagogies and how she gleans what works for her from them. Anne briefly breaks down what it means to be "Kodaly-inspired" and gives us a refresher on Dalcroze, Orff, and Music Learning Theory. Be sure to follow Anne on IG and FB - @anacrusic and Anacrusic or on her website www.anacrusic.comChoir Baton Host: Beth Philemon @bethphilemon | www.bethphilemon.comVisit Choir Baton Online: @choirbaton | www.choirbaton.comChoir Baton Theme Song by Scott Holmes

116: Designing for Joyful Learning, with Anne Mileski (Anacrusic)

Musicality Now

Today we’re joined by Anne Mileski of Anacrusic.com and The Anacrusic Podcast. Anne is trained in several of the musicianship approaches we’ve covered here on the show before, including Kodály, Orff, Dalcroze and Music Learning Theory, and her mission is to make music teaching as purposeful, sequential, and joyful as possible for music teachers everywhere. Anne really stands out as someone who draws on each of those approaches to musicianship training to develop her own very well thought-out material. And she shares this with other music teachers through in-person workshops as well as her popular website and podcast. We really enjoyed getting the chance to talk to Anne about her experience and observations of the various approaches to musicianship training, and we’ll throw in our normal disclaimer that although some of the specifics we’ll be talking about are geared towards music teachers and early childhood music education, if you are an adult and/or a student yourself, keep listening! There are plenty of insights and valuable nuggets for you in here. We talk about: • Anne’s own musical upbringing and a few key experiences, both positive and negative, that influenced her own musicality and how she approaches her teaching • The relative strengths of Kodály, Orff, Dalcroze, and Music Learning Theory • The importance of sequencing in teaching and learning - and the two timescales you need to be thinking about for designing effective music learning sequences. Anne is a great story-teller and we know her stories will resonate with you, as well as her insights on singing, sequencing, improvising and more. Subscribe For Future Episodes!
