Communities: Orchestral Communities, Personal Communities

Posted Dec 21, 2010 by Jeff McQueen

Students will be able to relate the similarities and differences experienced by orchestra members and students of a first grade class as connected to the idea of the interdependence within a community. They will recognize that as members of a classroom community there are expectations for jobs, behavior, and intrinsic motivation to function to the best of the individual's ability. They will understand that a community within an orchestra has a similar construct to a classroom in that it is led by a conductor and that each person plays an important role within the playing of a piece, practicing their individual part, and colleague support.
