Building Bridges: Music in Tutoring
Christopher Myers, Tutor, North Campus
Alexander Quintana, Student, North Campus
Music is a bridge; not only does it build extensive connections between individuals and cultures, but it also overlaps with practically every academic discipline. Music is mathematics, language, science, history, culture, and health all wrapped into one; however, can it be used in collegiate-level academic tutoring? Christopher Myers and Alexander Quintana present music as a tool that can be creatively implemented by tutors to facilitate interdisciplinary learning, foster higher-order thinking, and promote empathy between tutors and students.
