Two years ago I was introduced grad school and to Edwin Gordon's Music Learning Theory in a week-long 'workshop' course at MSU. It was a fun week that reawakened my mind and reignited my love of learning. The introduction to Music Learning Theory both affirmed (some of) and reversed (others of) my thoughts and practices as a music teacher. My eagerness to learn more was instant, but my enthusiasm and understanding has been steadily growing ever since. Maybe I'll post about it someday. But next week, I'll begin my first certification workshop in MLT with one of my favorite professors and two of the brilliant teachers that she introduced me to.
I'm so excited.
We all leave on Sunday night. Ryan, Maya, Sophie and I will all be staying with our very generous Uncle Randy and Aunt Jo for a week...or more if they'll let us. Ryan has a week away from work and will spend it touring the playgrounds of Lansing with Maya and Sophie.
