Music Education Club
The overall philosophy of the Music Education Club (MEC) is to provide the means especially for students from the areas of music education, preprimary and primary education, to engage in numerous practical and enjoyable activities that have to do with music and education and to expand upon their skills as music educators. Members will have the opportunity to learn the basics of various musical instruments which are used in the schools (i.e., guitar, xylophone, baglamas and classroom percussion instruments). They will also engage in discussions on philosophical, methodological and practical issues in the area of music education, participate and conduct a student ensemble of Orff instruments and will become acquainted with current trends and approaches, as well as musics of other cultures. Throughout the year the MEC will invite a number of guest musicians and music educators to talk and meet with its members for various issues regarding music and education.
