Sharing Day Workshop on April 9th!


Are you already registered for the workshop?  If not, don't miss out and REGISTER today

Sharing Day is a workshop we offer every other year, where educators from our local and surrounding community can share their expertise and knowledge with fellow music teachers.

We have a wide variety of topics and activities we have in store for you!
  • Nicole Schutz: a World Music piece
  • Connie Ohlmann and Paul Flowers: Technology in the music room. 
  • Rhonda Degerstedt (Hinton, AB): Movement piece incorporating the book by B.J. Novak, The Book with No Pictures.
  • Lucas Coffey: Drum circle time led by Lucas, who has experience doing residencies with many schools from K-9. 

IMPORTANT:  
  • We will be providing a catered lunch for everyone (delicious sandwiches from the Elm cafe, veggies/dip, and cookies) for you at this workshop. We want to thank you for your support to the Chapter! Bon appetit! 
  • It isn't necessary, but feel free to bring your tablet/ipad/chromebook for the technology session, and, if you are able, a tubano/djembe. We will try our best to provide drums for everyone at this workshop.

See you there on Saturday, April 9th at Elizabeth Finch School.

Remember: Full-time Undergraduate Students, the workshop is FREE! You are welcome to join us and learn alongside music teachers! We still need you to register
here please.
