This is a unique program that Heather offers to interested schools in the Russell and surrounding area. The program is based on the Ontario Curriculum for the Arts. Heather moves from classroom to classroom and the children participate in a variety of musical activities. Students sing, play rhythm instruments, compose, study musical form, and learn Italian terminology as it pertains to music. All students participate and it is exciting to see everyone engaged and enjoying music. Autistic children and children with learning disabilities can also experience a great amount of success.
This program has come about because many schools no longer have music specialists but still recognize the importance of music and want to deliver quality music education to their students. Schools who are feeder schools to a high school with a band program find it particularly beneficial.
