Although my career seems to be pointing me towards a lot more music-making these days, I am ever mindful of the fact that in my heart of hearts I am a teacher first. I LOVE teaching. I LOEV getting kids fired up about learning and helping them to find something of themselves in the process.
Yesterday morning, my last assignment in Phoenix was to hang with the religious school and teach in the music chug -- classes rotated in and out, every twenty minutes, all morning long. The teacher in one class kindly shared this little video with me. I was teaching them a little of Noam Katz's infectious setting of "Halleli". I had a great time working with their teen songleaders and look forward to hanging with the kids again on a future visit.
