"Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy, it's the universal language of mankind."
I teach music/performing arts at the Henderson Inclusion Elementary School in Dorchester, MA. I believe music opens up connections to the student's soul, mind and body. It enables all to communicate in a universal language. Using a UDL approach, all students are included to find their voice.
I support literacy by communicating songs, stories, history and ideas through music and performance. My arts team and students create, plan and present musical theater using many ways to represent a theme. Using multiple modalities, (aural, visual, and kinesthetic) we make meaning out of complex ideas. The performances are shown and shared to a wide audience. Our auditorium is packed to capacity.
"Our students are highly engaged while learning through music." - Principal Lampron.
One Henderson parent described the performances as an incredible inclusive love fest connecting everyone. Moving the audience to tears, a student who was non-verbal sang "Feed the Birds" solo at our performance of Mary Poppins.
