Program Description

Learning to Teach: Teaching to Learn (LTTL) focuses on providing early-degree teaching experiences for Auburn University Music Education majors, and music education lessons for elementary students in Loachapoka and Reeltown who, due to school funding issues, otherwise would not have music education. Auburn Music Education students complete Introduction to Music Education in their first fall semester (freshman fall), and then complete three semesters of team and individual teaching in Music Education Lab I, Lab II, and Methods I. During the first two semesters in LTTL (2nd and 3rd semester), Auburn Music Education students teach in teams, and in their fourth semester (sophomore spring), they serve as mentors for their freshman-level peers, and they teach individually with a peer mentor observer. This program sets a foundation of in-classroom, independent teaching experiences as Auburn Music Education students move into their methods classes and begin working with certified music educators, teaching, and learning from experts in the field.
