In this hands-on and highly dialogical session, participants will explore how technologies, popular and vernacular music, backward curricular design and Universal Design can help to construct inclusive and engaging music learning experiences. We will also use concepts gleaned from disability studies and disability justice (i.e., intersectionality and identity, autonomy and voice, barriers and access, interdependence and differentiation) in order to shape music pedagogy. Through conversation, making music, and collaborative curricular planning, we will develop not only activities we can embrace in our classrooms tomorrow, but potentially ideas that might help us continue to revise, reshape, and create new music learning experiences and settings that are inclusive and engaging to contemporary learners in K-12 music classrooms.
