Continuing Education for Music Teachers

The RATIONALE

The UP College of Music has offered a continuing education for Filipino music teachers in the 1980’s to supplement the training provided by higher education institutions.

Recent trends in the study and pedagogy of music education in the international level include multicultural music education. Local educational reforms in the Philippines have also resonated these cultural developments through the K+12 curriculum.

Thus, the continuing education program for Filipino music teachers is being revived in response to these developments.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

This post baccalaureate summer certificate program is a three-summer program designed to address the need for music teachers to enhance their musical growth and teaching competencies. Such growth will have an impact in the quality of music teaching and learning across the country. A certificate of completion will be given at the end of the program to participants who have completed the three levels of training.

PROGRAM OUTCOMES

At the end of the program, the participants will be able to:
1. Demonstrate a thorough understanding of the principles of music theory, practice, and pedagogy;
2. Apply musical and pedagogical knowledge and skills in solo and group rehearsal, performance, and in general music classroom experiences;
3. Show appreciation of varied music teaching and learning situations, as well as of diverse forms of music-making and music cultures in the Philippines and the world.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS AND GRADING SYSTEM

Students under the program must be teachers teaching music in both public and private schools. A certificate of employment duly signed by the principal must be presented together with the application form. The enrollee will be given a graded performance evaluation at the end of each course by the instructor. For courses offered in succession such as music theory, keyboard, solo vocal/instrument, conducting, the enrollee has to pass the previous level before enrolling in the next level. There will only be 20 slots for each batch of participants per level. Application will be processed on a first come, first served basis.
