You've got to be kind to your friends
They ought to be kind to you

I teach music because I think living in harmony should be the ultimate goal of any education system. Music is a form heightened teamwork and careful listening to one's self and to others.

My grade 3 students love Imagine Dragons, they tell me. They keep me up to date with the latest hits. Their smash hit "Radioactive" is actually a neat wee song that I could easily arrange for uke,recorder, synth and piano. It also ties in with teaching  the virtue of responsibilty, in this case resposibility towards our planet's ecology.
