Posted by Shalina Wozny on Feb 6, 2019 3:30:00 PM

Valentine's Day for elementary school music and theater students can be fun. They're still exchanging Valentine's Day cards and excited to pass them out. The boys think that girls have cooties or they have a "girlfriend" at school. The two dynamics are funny to watch in the classroom.

Fundraising Ideas

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Jan 30, 2019 12:30:00 PM

Since you are probably working with a group of students or a music-minded community that needs to raise money for equipment or a trip you all are taking - a group event is the best way to go to fundraise. It allows you to entertain others and show off your group's skills.

Benefits of Going to Music Class

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Jan 16, 2019 1:30:00 PM

I was always a good student. I went to class and listened to the teacher. I even helped other students that needed help grasping the quadratic formula - math was my best subject. However, not all students have that same mindset. Most students want to know the why behind what they're learning and why they have to sit through a teacher explaining something they're "never going to use".
