Course Materials

Candidates receive a binder with materials for the course as well as a family songbook and teacher manual for our introductory compilation Fiesta musical. Since these are the songs we work through and discuss during the training, those who pass the training should be able to comfortably teach demo classes or even a short introductory semester using the Fiesta musical collection.

Demo Classes

Candidates in an in-person training also get to observe two live demo classes, and on the third day each presents an assigned “project song” to be workshopped as a group. This presentation allows for deeper group discussion and showcases the candidate’s new skills in teaching the CyBC curriculum. Participation throughout the weekend plus the final project determine whether the candidate passes the training.

Candidates in an online training also get to observe two demo classes. These prerecorded demo classes will instruct the candidates on offering the program in both a “live” and “online” format. On the third day each candidate will present an assigned “project song” to be workshopped as a group via Zoom. This presentation allows for deeper group discussion and showcases the candidate’s new skills in teaching the CyBC curriculum. Participation throughout the Zoom calls plus the final project determine whether the candidate passes the training.

Music Together Training

For candidates who are not Music Together trained and wish to add that training at a later date (we recommend you do take it at some point), there is a 50% discount on the second training completed within a year. Whether you complete the MT training or the CyBC training first, the discount applies to the second training. Please note that although completing the Music Together training is a big plus for professional development, candidates do not have to complete the MT training prior to teaching CyBC – only our training is required to teach Canta y Baila Conmigo.
