Music, Math, Physics, Shinichi Suzuki, and Education: Reforging the Quadrivium
A thousand years ago, European universities once taught the sciences of music, geometry, astronomy, and arithmetic under one umbrella. While these studies were forced apart by the industrial revolution, but find themselves urged back together by modern research. Joseph learned viola through the methods of Shinichi Suzuki, and has been teaching the old knowledge as one study through Suzuki's own methods and methodology. Participants will be able shown the geometrical functions of music and the theory of harmony to see how the language of music can be learned according to the rules of the mathematical language and how math can be taught musically: one subject deepening understanding of one another, letting learning be natural, quick, and fun.
We had some technical issues with the streaming, today (July 23). We are all set for tomorrow, so please join us for the workshops (July 24).
