Strings Off And Running (SOAR) is a program in string instrument instruction being offered to St. Mary's School students in nearby Cortland. It is directed by Julie Along Carr and taught by her with assistance from an IC senior music education major. Junior music education majors from Ithaca College are also involved in the instruction process as part of their field experience and string pedagogy classes.
While the main music library at Ithaca College hosts an entire floor of extensive holdings for music majors, the Kinyon Resource Room is an important additional resource. This resource room provides many materials for teaching, including one of the country’s most complete educational collections of general music basal series and band, jazz, and string method books. In addition, storybooks, maps, composer posters, music scores, choral octavos, and solo and chamber music are available, and the area also holds a full array of multicultural, multimedia, and technology-based pedagogical materials to aid students in their teaching. As part of this collection, sample videos, portfolios, and pedagogical materials have been archived from 1992 to the present for use by today’s students. Most of the materials can be checked out for student and faculty use.
