This is a space to celebrate music, art, literature and family. I am currently on faculty at the Arbutus Club in Vancouver. I draw from Orff, Kodaly and Reggio Emilia philosophies of education. My philosophy is centred around the idea that all people are musical – if you have a heartbeat, you have rhythm, if you can make sound with your voice, you have a song.
“The inexpressible depth of music, so easy to understand and yet so inexplicable, is due to the fact that it reproduces all the emotions of our innermost being, but entirely without reality and remote from its pain… Music expresses only the quintessence of life and of its events, never these themselves.”
~ Oliver Sacks from Musicophelia: Tales of Music and the Brain
