Using Music in the Classroom to Inspire Creative Expression

Edutopia Blog post written by Gaetan Pappalardo

This article starts out by asking the question: “What’s your passion?” How would you answer that question? When I attended the TEDX Dirigo last month in Brunswick that was a question I was asked. I am not sure how I answered since it was a different question then I am used to being asked. What would your answer be if you were asked that in an interview for a teaching position. I do like the question especially when it comes to teachers and teaching. Shouldn’t we each be clear about our passion since (hopefully) our learners are becoming passionate as they grow and learn in the classrooms they learn in?! At least I hope that students are becoming passionate about something as they learn and grow.

Many of you are passionate about music and this blog post is about music in the classroom… Please click here to read the article.
