Creating Musical Magic

It has been a long time since I have posted a blog, and a lot has happened! I put on the musical Bye Bye Birdie in the 2nd last week of my Term 2, left my old school at the end of that term and started at my new school as a permanent position of Head Teacher Creative and Performing Arts in Term 3. Here is an unedited promotion photo we did for the musical showing some of the costumes from the female chorus. I made all of the skirts,… Read more Creating Musical Magic

Steps to Performance Success

  It is during this time of year, as a Music teacher, I have my classes complete their Music Performance Assessments. What I find frustrating is that despite ongoing checks, discussions with students about song choice and giving them constructive feedback and advice on how to improve, they still don’t listen to me!!! They still think they, or the advice of their friends, is better than the real advice from an experienced teacher who knows how to get results. Over the years I have ran into past students, who could… Read more Steps to Performance Success

Wish List Sale Time

Hi All it’s been a busy couple of weeks again for me.

The next… Read more Wish List Sale Time

Trying Something New.

Hi all, this is a new post this week to try something new for me, and I am not sure if even what I am trying to do will work!!!! Oh well, first time for everything. There are a few blogs I like to follow and one is frompond.blogspot.com.au On this blog there is an Art Linky, and I am going to try this for the first time today. The brief is for a Primary School based Art Lesson. I am a High School Art Teacher, but my Year 7’s have… Read more Trying Something New.

The Things We Do!

Hello to all and I hope everyone has had a great week. My last two weeks have been really quite busy, and I am feeling like I have a lot of work to catch up on! On Tuesday of last week my school had an information evening for the students and families of 2015 Year 7. It seems quite early to do this, but the parents soon have to nominate which high school they are sending their child to and that means time for publicity for us. For this particular… Read more The Things We Do!
