Learning Through Music

Learning Through Music (LTM) is a flexible, interdisciplinary model which fosters music infusion, but does not require that every subject be taught every day through music.

Music plays an important role in students’ individual academic and artistic development as well as in building a student community. The pedagogy most consistent with this approach is project and performance based learning with clear standards and outcomes. The Five Processes that come from the learning of music—Questioning, Listening, Creating, Performing, and Reflecting—are also an effective tool for learning all subjects. Interdisciplinary teaching which includes music is more effective than teaching each subject in isolation.
