Busy lately - no time for trivial exercises such as blogging. But I wanted to commemorate the fact that last Saturday, November 8, marked my fiftieth trip around the sun. My half-century was marked by a geocaching flash mob event and the eating of barbecue.
One of the things I'm busy with is preparing a presentation to the elementary band and orchestra teachers of Fulton County. The presentation will be about what we can do to incorporate improvisation and creativity into our beginning band and orchestra instruction. My honest opinion, after teaching for 27 years? Not much. A little, maybe, so that's what I'll cover. But at the elementary level, not much.
