Jana Martin: Music of My Hawaii: Songs, Ukulele and Cultural Context
August 27, 2022 9AM - 1PM

Being the third generation born and raised on the island of Kauai, my musical upbringing includes a mix of my Japanese heritage and Hawaiian culture. This workshop will explore the varied styles of Hawaiian musical traditions including cultural context, and will examine the idea of “What is traditional folk music?” Material for all ages will be presented, along with Kodály-
inspired pedagogical connections, ukulele arrangements, and dances. Repertoire will include Hawaiian music, as well as music representative of other prominent cultures in Hawaii and
Hawaiian-style covers of popular music.

This workshop will be in the Crist Room at the Conservatory of Music, at Capital University.


Jana Kitamura Martin is in her 21st year of teaching music, with experiences in PK-12 vocal and general music. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education from the University of Northern Colorado and Masters in Education in Curriculum and Instruction. She completed her Kodály Certification at New York University, and Orff certification at DePaul University. She also had the opportunity to continue her musical learning by participating in the 2017 Kodály Seminar at the Kodály Institute in Kecskemét, Hungary to learn more about the methodology in the birthplace of Kodály. Martin currently teaches general music at Highcrest Middle School in Wilmette Public School District 39, and directs the Wilmette High Five Junior Choir for students of all abilities. She has been a member of the faculty at the DePaul University Summer Kodály Institute, teaching musicianship classes since 2016.

Larena Code: A Joyful Journey: Inclusive Repertoire and Activities for the Kodály-Inspired Music Room
October 8, 2022, 9AM - 1PM 

In this actionable session, attendees will sing and play kid-tested activities and repertoire that validate multiple identities and center joy. We will also experience lesson segments that pair songs with guiding questions to support identity and diversity work within the elementary music room. Attendees will leave with ideas on how to incorporate more inclusive repertoire and practices in their own personal classroom contexts. Additionally, I’ll share step-by-step how I used the foundation of my Kodály training to gradually become a more anti-bias music educator and invite participants to reflect on their own anti-bias journeys and possible next steps. Join me in my ongoing journey to sing and play joyfully with an inclusive lens.

This workshop will be in the Crist Room at the Conservatory of Music, at Capital University.
