TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hello! My name is Christine Larsen and I teach K-5 elementary general music and 4th/5th grade chorus in Massachusetts.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in a hands-on and creative approach to music education. My lessons are interactive, fun, cross-curricular, and incorporate technology! I have experience with different methodologies- Music Learning Theory, Kodaly, Orff, and Dalcroze- and use different aspects of all of them in my classroom.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My kids tell me I'm the best music teacher ever!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

University of Delaware, B.M. Music Education, Minor in Theater Studies Currently working on my Masters in Music Education at Gordon College.
