Take a peek inside our classroom under the "Music Photos" link!
I am ecstatic to be a part of the Bristow Run team this year! For the past five years I have been a Music Teacher at a Montessori school, and recently completed my Master's Degree in Music Education, as well as my training and certification in Orff Schulwerk Pedegogy. (For more information about Orff Schulwerk and Elemental Music, see the "Useful Links" section.)
I am a strong believer in learning through experience, and the children and I will be using speech, body percussion, movement, singing, and instruments to expand our musical understanding and creative potential. Because our work will be quite active, it is always a good idea to dress the same way for music classes as you would for P.E. ; tennis shoes, and shorts or tights under skirts and dresses. If you have any questions about the program, feel free to contact me. I am proud to be a member of this extraordinary educational community.
