ORMTA Convention 2016

Stephanie and I headed down to Chatham, ON last week to attend our first ORTMA conference.  We drove down in my brothers new Prius.  I must say that I actually stayed with in the speed limit while trying desperately to keep the source energy display in the ECO window!  It is amazing how a visual on energy consumption can alter your driving habits :  ).   Just so you…. know we averaged 3.8 l per 100km!  No one swore at me when I took a 500 metre velocity diminuendo to optimize the recharging of the battery.  It was very cool!!

At the conference we met some wonderful people, made some great connections,  sold copies of Little Hands On Rhythm, attended the gala event, listened to  piano and voice performances from some amazingly talented young performers  and presented a Little Hands On Rhythm PowerPoint Presentation for the first time.

It was a whirlwind trip.    Luckily I had my lovely and talented daughter Stephanie with me to help out. We had a great time and are thankful that we had an opportunity to share this wonderful conference experience together.  Happy trails everyone!

Thank you to all who attended!

The workshop for Little Hands On Rhythm in Orangeville was a wonderful success thanks to Ashley Jonker, our gracious host,  and the attending teachers who were so welcoming.   Workshops are an opportunity for teachers to catch up with their peers,  meet new teachers and share ideas and information.  The workshop consisted of a demonstration of the box contents, how the rhythm board can be used –  to teach note and rest values, time signatures, dividing the beats into measures,  two-handed rhythms, mixed meter, to make up rhythms that can then be applied to pitches and to play rhythm games using the Random Rhythm card set.   Lynne Scott brought information on the Orangeville District Music Festival (www.odmf.ca) that she kindly passed on to the other teachers.

Thank you to those who purchased the fun, new rhythm teaching tool for their young students.  How surprised the kids will be when they open the orange box to reveal  a vast array of rhythm pieces they can use to explore rhythm and make up their own rhythm compositions.

if you are interested in hosting a workshop for Little Hands On Rhythm, please contact me to discuss a date and time.  I would welcome any interest in sharing this magnificent new teaching tool with other educators.  Many thanks!
