"We are the music makers & we are the dreamers of dreams."
- Arthur O'Shaughnessy
James DesJardins, The Music Teacher
I am an elementary music teacher who has been with NYS public schools since 2006; instructing both classroom music & chorus. I am a published composer & am certified in Orff-Schulwerk & Music Learning Theory.
I believe in the power of great teaching and in the power of great music. The aim of Elementary Music Teacher is to spark conversation and to serve as a comprehensive resource for parents and educators, alike.
