The Magical Yet book and Lesson

Many thanks to my friend Jeaneau Julian for sharing this lovely lesson she created! 

Don't forget to check out my new Patreon community of music teachers for exclusive content, workshops, and mentoring opportunities.

Click here to download the Google Slides and make a copy. 

There are a couple "pathways" you can use for this- the composed song below or the one from the Volumes (see lesson idea below).  Either way you go, this is a MUST READ book for every child- and adult, too!

New Community to Learn and Grow With!

 I am so excited to announce my new community of music makers and teachers!  

If you have spent any time on the blog you know how important sharing is to me. Sharing my creativity and experience in teaching music using the Orff Approach has been gratifying, exciting, and a tremendous honor.  There are a plethora of posts here, on Facebook, and Instagram, and I present at workshops and conferences in the US and Canada.  I also create lesson activities and exclusive playful and process-based lessons and video chats on my Patreon page for the O For Tuna community. 

We are all looking for ideas to streamline and energize our music classrooms. We are all wanting to be the best we can be for our students- more organized, prepared, excited, and to make lesson planning easier. For about the price of a latte mocha once a month, you will connect with other music teachers who are excited to grow and learn together. We will have Zoom discussions, work on lesson planning, develop children's literature into music activities, attend workshops, and much, much, more.  I hope you will consider joining us!
