New Transition

I find myself in a new place as I transition from face-to-face teaching to creating materials that others may use. When I am in the classroom, I build spontaneously on ideas which come to me. As I create more detailed materials, I envision the steps we have taken together. I want the student to feel so supported in trying out new musical compositions, arrangements, note reading, rhythm puzzles, composing cards. I want the parents and teachers to feel the same feeling when they are teaching and sharing as the feeling I have when I design the materials. We truly have unlimited abilities. My materials tap into them, establish the musical vocabulary, and enjoin the students to take the risk, explore, experiment! Everything is becoming more accessible through newsletters and ongoing new releases. © 2012 Kathryn Hardage
