Reading provides me knowledge, pleasure, escape, and entertainment. I cannot imagine a life without reading; visual or audio.

I teach music k-4 in a building of 500 students. I meet with each of 20 classes once a week for 50 minutes. I use visuals whenever I can to enhance understanding and to spark interest. During each class, we sing move and play instruments. I often share a book during class. If the book has song lyrics, I sing the book as I turn the pages. If the book is has rhyme, rhythm, or repetition, I may use it to inspire a drumming lesson. If the book is a story, we may dramatize it and improvise an instrumental accompaniment.
