Come experience the “Aloha Spirit” of Hawaii with activities you can easily take back to your general music, Orff, or Kodaly classroom. Dr. Chet-Yeng Loong, from the University of Hawai’i, will lead participants in singing Hawaiian children’s mele (music), playing accompaniments on `ukulele, and dancing and singing the hula. Explore the history and background of the Hawaiians, starting with the Polynesians who came from the Samoa and Tonga islands. The workshop will also include Korean and Filipino folk songs, ethnic instruments, and movement activities. Bring your ‘ukulele, if you have one.
