It's my tenth anniversary of teaching music to children! For many years, I was running workshops, artist in residence programs, specialist percussion programs and tutoring not only with school aged people but adults and young ones too. I decided that Primary School was where my heart belonged so I went back and did a general teaching degree - combine that with a passion for things that crash and bang and squeak and eventually sound like music and you get a music teacher!
I have trained with and lectured for both Orff and Kodaly events, and I love so many elements of both. As a trained percussionist - I have a personal affiliation with marimbas and drums, but love to mix it up so that students can find what they love in the classroom.
My awards are generally made by kids! I have a "Muisic is magic" award, a necklace made of gumnuts and beads, an 'I love jrums foreva" award and some certificates of appreciation.
Bachelor of Music - Victorian College of the Arts. Diploma of Education - Deakin University. Learning from the world around me - Ongoing.
