I have been a music teacher in the state of Alaska for the past fourteen years
In addition to working in the public schools I have been an Artist in Residence throughout the state. I find the richness and diversity of Art and Culture in Alaska vast and inspiring!

While working in the Lower Kuskuquim Delta School District on a multi school collaboration, I used many of these teaching techniques to create student led musical collages based on Elder interviews.

The following lessons will use these techniques to take an in depth look at Composer Randy Fleischer’s Echo Symphonic piece. These lessons work best when students are comfortable and willing to share and work with the class as a group. This happens best when led by the classroom teacher. Enjoy!
