Student Run Lab Ideas

Youth have their own set of skills and tastes, and it is important to keep this in mind.  Although the skills that connect musical ideas are front-loaded, there are a lot of places a teacher can offer freedom, after the general skills are understood.  What learners make when the teacher isn’t looking is usually pretty rad!

  • Music that students make and/or listen to will be invited into the space
  • Students search “literature” (music, art, other things)
  • Choice “research products”

Here are some skills that can be taught as students need them in individual interactions.  Often the best way to do this is to think of it as “each-one-teach-one.”  (with safety or really technical skills you can set specified boundaries)

  • Music/Video
  • Coding with MIT Scratch
  • Concrete Art and/or Performance
