Class Experience

As a public educator, I have much experience presenting sensitive topics to students that do not reflect a specific religion or personal perspective. I have carefully guided students from ages 4-12 through difficult topics such as the enslavement of African Americans, Apartheid, and more. I briefly and superficially touch on the lyrical/historical content to give an objective context into where the music came from, which is my area of expertise. My focus is and always will be chiefly on the music. It is not my intention or part of my curriculum to teach history beyond the music we're singing or learning about in class. The reason we learn African American spirituals and protest music is for pedagogical purposes and to show that music can be, and indeed has been, a powerful tool for appealing to the deepest needs of human beings.
