The faculty and students of Hartt’s Music Education Division welcome Marguerite Wilder to The Hartt School October 10 through October 14. During her residency, Wilder will present lectures on teaching strategies for the beginning of instrumental classes and include topics such as the selection of literature for young bands; the teaching of fundamentals to beginning instrumental music students using an assessment method that monitors individual progress regardless of instrumentation, class size, or the varying ability levels of the students; and classroom organizational and management techniques gathered from 30 years of teaching instrumental music. Materials from the Do It! Play and Teach
series for band, orchestra, and recorder will be provided to Hartt students for their educational portfolios.
