Wish you had more time to score study? Join the club! We all have schedules that pull us away from the secret to having a great ensemble...score study. The key is being able to maximize the time you DO have for score study. Learn quick and easy tricks for organizing, programming, rehearsing, and teaching, leading to informed teaching which ultimately inspires learning. The better you know your score, the easier it is to teach the music. Participants will learn/share techniques that will save time and improve your ensembles.

SPRING ONLINE COURSE DETAILS
 
VanderCook Online is powered by Schoology (www.schoology.com). Through this learning management system, you'll be able to interact directly with your instructor, students in your classes, and members of the greater VanderCook Online community.
 
Classes this spring term officially begin on Monday, February 4, 2019. The week prior to the Spring 2019 term start date, we will be adding you as a new Schoology user. Be on the lookout for an email from noreply@schoology.com or wfong@vandercook.edu with log-in instructions between January 28th and February 3rd. Once you are given credentials, simply visit www.online.vandercook.edu to login. On the morning of February 4th, you'll have access to your classroom and course material.
 
Some courses have specific online chat meeting times (please see course descriptions), while others have a flexible meeting schedule. You can expect all courses to meet together in a live online chat. If a live meeting time doesn’t work, you can work with your instructor to make other arrangements.
 
You’ll have the opportunity to work at your own pace each week while completing assignments and posting responses to discussion questions. You’ll constantly be interacting with your instructor and classmates online, and working through new material each week. We know how crazy school schedules can get, so our instructors try to make everything as flexible as possible!
 
Courses are scheduled for 13 weeks, with one week (March 18-24, 2019) being a designated week off for Spring Break. The Spring Online Term ends Sunday, May 5, 2019.
