MUSIC STUDENTS, STAFF, AND PARENTS;
As I begin my 8th year of teaching music, I am energized by the joys and rewards of my chosen profession. What an incredible occupation; teaching music to you! We are so proud to start another incredible year with you and to welcome our new staff!
We believe that real learning is not a study about things, but rather an experience inside things. Making music is surely one of life’s most real experiences!
We believe that self-expression and creativity are two of the most vital skills that education can foster. Making music can be one of life’s most expressive and creative experiences.
Learning to make personal judgments that are rational and grounded in knowledge and preparation, are essential to mature adult thinking. Making music offers one the opportunity to practice to perform, while making hundreds of important decisions and musical judgments every minute!
Facts may be taught, but meaning is discovered. Making music helps us get in touch with our feelings, our culture, our human history, and our sense of purpose and belonging: our self !
Welcome back to school to all of the students and staff. What a special opportunity we have to experience the power of music!
