Teaching Conversation Skills Through Music – exploring Call and Response

Nina had a great time with Juan and the students of PS 102 who continue to work on their greetings. Every lesson opens up with hand shakes and the “Say hello” song, a hit with the students.  Lesson in March and April will be  focused on conversation skills. During the last two sessions the students explored different instruments: guitar, finger harp, Japanese flute and percussion instruments. Juan and the students practiced call and response and discussed the similarities between musical conversations and real life conversations with friends and teachers.  They learned about the importance of listening, understanding patterns, and answering questions.  During each class we always point out new words and discuss the vocabulary that helps students to improve communication.
