Music Education Department Receives Grant

Tigerville SC (January 17, 2017) The North Greenville University Music Education Department was recently awarded an $8,000 grant from the Graham Foundation, a private family foundation based in Greenville, S.C.

Grant author and NGU Coordinator of Transitional and Tutoring Services Dr. Jo Ann Garrett indicated that the award is purposed for classroom instruments and literature fundamental to the Orff approach to learning music.

This approach is based on the natural behaviors of children - singing, speaking, movement and playing instruments, while developing creativity and improvisation. Via these resources, music education students will learn to teach musical literacy, imitation, exploration, and improvisation appropriate to the elementary music classroom. The variety of instruments and literature also facilitates student appreciation for cultural diversity.

"We are appreciative of these resources that are so valuable in preparing our students for the classroom," said Garrett.
