I attended a few sessions at FMEA led by clinicians Don Dupont and Brian Hiller. The sessions we amazing! These gentlemen are master educators and musicians. If you ever have a chance to see them at a conference, take the opportunity. Don and Brian were so kind as to offer a guest post for the day!
Thought of the day by Don Dupont & Brian Hiller
There is a wonderful African proverb:
If you can walk you can dance!
If you can talk you can sing!
We display this prominently in our classrooms.
It lets the students know that the music room is a
place where all are invited to create and make music,
regardless of ability or talent. It sends a message
that every student is a valuable contributor
to the music-making process.
