  • thumbnail for Keith Dye
  • The TLC (Tone/ Literacy/Coordination) approach allows focused attention to the mastery of the most basic skills and understandings in either a beginning class or a setting for remediation of advanced instrumentalists. TLC can provide a clear path to highly informed instructor assessment of student learning and achievement. Session participants will gain understandings of the instructional strategies and skills necessary to employ the TLC approach in their own instrumental music instruction.
