MY TEACHING STYLE

As an educator and activist, my main goal is to architect environments where students have fun discovering the world around them through music, stay engaged in learning, and most importantly become great citizens of the world, who grow up to be the builders of a happy, safe and beautiful world. For this I have created a non profit organization; “E3 Education ; Engage - Educate - Entertain” My teaching practice is deeply anchored in Howard Gardners’ Theory of Multiple Intelligences. I love designing developmentally and culturally appropriate curricula (read: games!) that allow my students to experience information across their different intelligences and through interdisciplinary art forms so that they not only learn in ways that are natural to them, but also so that they can learn new and different ways of learning. During a lesson on the Afro Cuban 3:2 Clave beat, my students get to explore that rhythm by playing it, singing it, making a mathematical equation based on it, creating a choreography based on 3’s and 2’s, writing haikus based on it and more. This approach allows me to truly have a differentiated classroom and to build a sense of trust between my students and me. My students trust me that I will teach them in a way that they will understand. A positive by-design-byproduct of the multiple intelligences frame of mind is that the lessons are extremely fun. I strive to instill in my students a sense of play. After all; we play music. Being a student of the rich percussion cultures of West Africa, Brazil, Cuba and the Middle East, I am enchanted by the organic layering and juxtaposition of rhythms. In my elementary school music classes, I focus on teaching rhythms and sounds from different cultures around the world. I do it first by ear and repetition, then by teaching non traditional music notation, and finally by teaching my students traditional music notation using a method that I created based on syllables, pictures and musical notes. Usually right before winter break, my first graders can read, write and perform any combination of quarter notes, eight notes and sixteenth notes. Another big part of my practice is to instill in children the idea that music can be a vehicle for change in our society. I strive to empower them to learn, think and speak up for social justice and human rights. Throughout the year, I assign my students to create original musical masterworks in response to issues that they care about. My music students have created PSA music videos protesting the NYPD’s practice of Stop & Frisk, created musical flash-mobs protesting the high sugar content of school snacks, and even become pen pals with President Barack Obama when they sent their art project featuring boomwackers and crayons about their concerns regarding school safety following the Sandy Hook School mass shooting. Through their own artistic master works, my students become elements of change within their own communities.
