Essential Learning in Music...Clarifying the Curriculum: Joe Berarducci Workshop - by Lori Jane Froese

Having grown up as a music teacher with Joe Berarducci’s resources and inspiration, I was excited to be able to be a part of this BC Orff workshop. Even after teaching music for so many years, I still came away with exciting new ideas and song material to bring to my music classes the following week. For me, however, the most meaningful part was being able to share my love of these workshops and of the Orff philosophy in general with my daughter, Ellie, who is now a first-year music teacher, joining me in the life-long journey of inspiring children through music and movement.
