You might remember this:

But now we will have 9 singing tubes for SO MUCH MORE FUN!

I’ve found that when children listen to themselves sing in a singing tube they are able to focus and match pitch better, which is our most important goal of K-2 music class. PLUS IT’S SILLY AND FUN. YAY!!!

Maybe this dance looks familiar? This was my offering for the RA Show… I just can’t get away from Ogres.

Hi Folsom Musicians!!!

Wow can you believe we’re already half way through July?! It seems that summer is flying by… so that means I’ve got to get my first video to you! This is my fifth summer working at the Governor’s Institute on the Arts. For two weeks, high schoolers from all around Vermont come together to build a community centered around art. That means painting, drawing, sculpting, dancing, singing, acting, writing, playing instruments, designing lights and SO MUCH MORE. This video shows only a glimpse of what the two weeks is like. I would encourage you to check out their website: GIAofVT.com to find out a lot more, BECAUSE YOU ALL NEED TO GO WHEN YOU ARE IN HIGH SCHOOL. Okay. All for now. I’ve been receiving some FANTASTIC videos from you… but I’m thinking more must be on their way…
