CAMP Curriculum & Resources

SMEA is thrilled to share a new Music Teacher Resource Kit! This complete information package and music resource kit will help prepare musicians to teach in remote, under-served and vulnerable communities in Saskatchewan. The kit was created by Eliza Doyle, Holly Yuzicapi, Clorice Delorme, Rebecca Donnelly and Mitch Dureault. It is divided into four Grade levels: K-2, 3-6, 7-9 and 10-12, with the 10-12 level featuring a detailed course for Music 10, 20, 30 and Guitar 10, 20, 30. The kit will feature resources such as chord charts, video demonstrations, song selections, scales and practice items for ukulele, guitar, fiddle, piano, bass, drums, mandolin, banjo and vocal instruction. All resources will be available at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.

Teachers will also have access to resources designed to promote Truth and Reconciliation in the classroom:

  • Treaties and the 70 First Nations Communities in Saskatchewan;

  • Land Acknowledgements;

  • Cultural Appropriation;

  • Cultural Protocols and Sensitivity;

  • Community and Relationship Building Techniques;

  • Tips for Dealing with Disclosures of Trauma (Vicarious and Intergenerational Trauma);

  • Disclosures and Legal Responsibility (Suicide/Abuse);

  • Fillable Community Contacts List; and

  • The Importance of Self-Care.

Thank you to the whole team for their amazing work on this project and for helping us support music development, mentorship, and the preservation of local music traditions and heritage in Northern Saskatchewan communities!

It builds local capacity to deliver programming through mentorship and by building programming with the direction and leadership of the host community.
