I have 7 years teaching experience in the public school system. My first job I was an assistant band director for fifth and sixth grade band. I taught group lessons or some people call them sectionals. I also taught an acting class and general music. After I got married and moved to Michigan it took a while to find a job. I did some long term subbing in general music and first grade before I landed at job in Kalamazoo Public Schools. Orchestra and general music were what I taught my first year but eventually just general music. At first I was K-6, then the 6th graders moved out and I was left with K-5.
I still on a rare occasion will sub a music class for the public schools but mostly I just use my skills to teach my kids at home. My goal is to pass on some ideas on how to teach music at home whether you homeschool or not. I believe it’s never too late to learn an instrument or sing. We all have the capability to do so and can enjoy music.
