TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I teach general music and chorus at South Lawrence East Elementary School. This is an urban school serving over 600 students in first through fourth grade. I also teach trumpet and piano in The Boston Conservatory's program for students on the autism spectrum.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Music Teaching Influences: Gordon's Music Learning Theory, John Feierabend, Orff-Schulwerk, and New England Dancing Masters. Most of my products here will be handouts and activities for individual or small group learning. My music class periods are all 75-minutes long with my current teaching schedule. I'm trying to create engaging and educational independent or small group music activities beyond basic "centers" (especially for 1st and 2nd grade).

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Master of Music (MM) in Music Education from The Boston Conservatory. Bachelor of Music (BM) degree in Trumpet Performance from Cornish College of the Arts. MLT Elementary General Music Level 1 Certification from Gordon Institute for Music Learning (GIML)
