So I have been teaching rhythm and percussion to elementary and middle school aged kids. So far, I’m loving it. I’m having so much fun! And I feel like I’m learning a lot about myself and my own passion for music. Next week, I am planning a lesson in body percussion. A couple of years ago, we did a piece with body percussion in choir and I fell in love with it. It’s fun, it’s active, and it’s musical! The piece we did was called Bring Me Little Water, Silvy and it was so much fun. Plus, that was when I learned that I could hit a low, (sexy) E. So I will be introducing the kids to body percussion. Not Silvy, because I think it’s a bit too advance at this stage. But using the methods I found from Michelle Wirth‘s website, I will be introducing my students to the joy and wonder of body percussion!
In other news, my birthday is this weekend. I’m turning 26. 26! How did that happen? Somehow, without my noticing it, I became a full-fledged bill-paying aches-and-pains adult with two jobs and responsibilities and such. I think I’ll drink some coffee and think about what I’ve become.
