I am a primary classroom music teacher, teaching levels Reception through Year 7.
I have been teaching since 2003. My first 3 years I taught in the UP classroom and since 2006 I have also been a specialist Classroom Music teacher.
This is my 2nd year teaching in an International Baccalaureate School and am loving the challenge of learning how to plan IB PYP.
My Aim is to better understand how to marry specialist music with classroom units of inquiry, while trying to create authentic links that not only link to classroom learning but allow me to honour the music curriculum I teach.
I am also the author of ‘The Interactive Music Room‘ a joint project with Bushfire Press where I adapt their ‘Music Room‘ resource for use in the Interactive classroom on IWB’s & soon mobile devices.
Here I will be posting music resources, strategies, lesson ideas and activities I am using & trialling with my students.
I hope you can benefit from my posts.
Teach to transform!
