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.
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).
