Music Mind Games workshops are designed for music teachers to focus on both practical concepts of learning games and the philosophy of Music Mind Games. Teachers have hands-on opportunities to play the games together throughout the workshop.
Workshops are led by certified Music Mind Games Teacher Trainers who have studied intensively with Michiko and had years of experience teaching Music Mind Games in their own studios or classrooms and leading teacher training workshops.
Interested in hosting?
Many of our workshops occur because a teacher or group of teachers reaches out to us to express interest. We are always excited to meet new people and travel to new places. Don't hesitate to contact us if you're interested in hosting a workshop near you.
5-Day Workshop (Unit 1 or Unit 2)
Our Unit 1 and Unit 2 workshops are immersive 5-day experiences with hands-on learning in a small group. Teachers learn the philosophy, how to play the games in each unit, and understand the curriculum. All workshops allow for time for demonstration classes with local students. Our Unit 1 and Unit 2 workshops may be taught in two parts if needed.
Unit 1 workshops include 30 teacher training hours and instruction on 100 games. The curriculum is from the Music Mind Games Unit 1 book by Michiko.
Unit 2 workshops include 30 teacher training hours and instruction on more than 70 games with a refresher of Unit 1 games. The Music Mind Games Unit 1 Course Booket by Michiko will be available to all registered teachers. Requirement: Unit 1 completion.
Our shorter overview workshops include Unit 1 and possibly some of the Unit 2 curriculum. They include Music Mind Games philosophy, and provide a brief but helpful overview of the concepts, goals, and methods. They typically include 8-10 games from Unit 1 and Unit 2 games that teachers will play under the guidance of a certified Music Mind Games Teacher Presenter. It is usually possible to include demonstration classes with local students.
1-2 Hour Presentations
These presentations are a great way to learn more about Music Mind Games. They can have different formats, some focusing on specific topics, but all provide an introduction to Music Mind Games.
* The number of games covered will vary based on the group's pace and the trainer's discretion.
