Confessions of a Kodály Music Teacher

Archive for September 2012

The first three weeks of middle school teaching have been, well, enlightening.  The first two weeks, I felt like Dori from Finding Nemo… “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming…”  I’m quickly learning that I remember more than I thought I would about band pedagogy, and that 7th and 8th music appreciation is quite challenging to teach, not because of the content, but to keep the kids interested.  Our class periods are rather long – 55 minutes – and to be honest, many days I have trouble focusing for that long!’

More to come…
