Becca Buck and Qorsho Hassan: The Rhythm of Somalia: A collection of songs, stories and traditions
October 19, 2024, 9AM - 1PM 
Capital University, Conservatory or Music, Crist Room

Join us for this engaging presentation on a culturally relevant approach to music education and trauma-informed teaching. Together, we will cover the importance of cultural representation, mirrors and windows in the music classroom, and integrating global music into your daily teaching. We will have critical discussions about the importance and need for global music education vs Eurocentric music education, learn about Somali culture, practices, and values, and discuss the importance of using global music to connect with students and their lived experiences. You will walk away knowing new Somali repertoire directly from Qorsho and Becca's newly published book, "The Rhythm of Somalia," and how to use this resource with your students.
