Ward Center

Music Pedagogy for Elementary School or Home Schooling
June 24-28, 2019

Depending upon enrollment, a Ward Method course may be offered as a three-credit course and/or workshop course. Teachers and students preparing to teach music may register to receive three academic credits for any of the Ward courses, such as MUS 543-01 or MUS 547-01, at $3,300 per course, for which oral and written examinations are required. Ward Method courses MUS 543A-01 and MUS 543B-01 are offered on a rotational basis.

Prerequisite: Basic knowledge of music theory, including tonic sol-fa system. The requirement is fulfilled if the applicant has earned a music diploma or successfully completed at least two semesters of music theory, including ear training, sight singing, melodic and harmonic dictation, etc.

With the consent of the instructor, workshop students interested chiefly in personal enrichment or home schooling activity may attend Ward Method courses by registering for MUS 543W-01 or MUS 547W-01 on a non-credit workshop study course basis at a cost of $600. After satisfactory accomplishment in the MUS-MUSW Ward course, a testimonial of attendance and successful completion can be issued, upon request. For information on the possible availability of limited scholarship assistance, email the director of the Ward Centre, Rev. Robert A. Skeris, at skeris@cua.edu.
