I traveled back to Newark, winding up my residency at Sarah Ward Preschool on Lock St. This time I got to see the teachers do their homework, musical exercises using “techiques” that I shared with them. It was great to see them take something and work it into their work, and take it a step further. And see the kids making rhythm and song with their favorite books, dancing, and being musical. One more visit next week. I’ve learned a whole lot.
Monday brought me back to Newark to the Sanford St. site for my workshops in rhythm building and melody building, and it was fine and dandy. Tried out my new wooden Xylo.
