TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching elementary music at a Christian international school (English-speaking) in Japan since 1981. I also teach middle school choir, private flute lessons grade 5-12, and have a high school flute ensemble.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Mainly Kodaly-inspired with a lot of movement. I try to give children skills on which they can build; I teach them to read music as well as feel it; I teach them good vocal and instrumental technique; I try to teach to as many learning styles as possible.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm not sure what is meant by this. I don't think we have these in our international school system.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Oberlin College, pipe organ and vocal music education. Regent College, Vancouver, BC (graduate school of theology), Old Testament and Hebrew. Japanese language school. Certificates in earth sciences such as Plate Tectonics, Earthquakes and Volcanoes from Open University in the UK. In my time off I am an English-speaking guide at Sakurajima Volcano in Kyushu Province, Japan.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My major was vocal music education and pipe organ. I have a Master's in Hebrew and Old Testament. I teach and perform on flute, recorder, piano and organ. I also have several choirs, including an adult Japanese church choir, so I am functional as a music teacher in both Japanese and English. In case you wonder why my music publications don't have any decorations, it's because when I buy music I like to be able to see the actual score I'm buying. I try to present my music in a way that you are not buying a "pig in a poke," but you can look at it and see if it will serve your needs before buying. I hope you enjoy my recorder music! Any clip art used in my publications is taken from the free clipart site http://www.clker.com/clipart-clickr.html Since beginning on TPT, I have begun studying science at the college level, because I love science! So you may be seeing some activities based on science, which I am producing in conjunction with my elementary classroom colleagues. My blog: http://heavenandnaturesing.blogspot.jp/
