Nadine Levitt on Learning Through Music

Key Points

  • Asking learners to engage with learning through music is a great way to give them ownership of content.

  • Music is about pattern recognition, synthesis and so much more.

On this episode of the Getting Smart Podcast Shawnee Caruthers is joined by Nadine Levitt, founder of WURRLYedu and PD Reimagined. She is also the creator of the My Mama Says book series and writer of numerous blogs and education resources. 

Nadine has a varied combination of experiences – from lawyer, to opera singer to education advocate and we are thrilled to have her on the podcast.

We don’t teach math to be a mathematician or science to be a scientist or english to be a writer […] why are we only teaching music to be a musician?

Thought provoking article. Very true that while we don't teach math, science and english to be a mathematician, scientist and writer respectively, why do we only teach music to become a musician. Learning through music could tap into a whole new dimension of human potential.
