I have been teaching General Music to my Kindergarten through 8th graders for the last 7 years and have loved every minute in an urban setting! This past summer, I had an opportunity to change positions and I am now working in a Private school. Both have unique challenges and opportunities, but it the end, music is music and my students love it! I have been the teacher technology leader, the coordinator for our school's leadership program, and much more!
I teach using Orff, some Kodaly and MLT as well as project based learning in my older middle school classes.
I have worked with the Philadelphia Orchestra and their School Concert Collaborative Group for the last 6 years to develop curriculum to accompany their School Concert Series. To download free copies of the curriculum guide, visit http://www.philorch.org/education
