    Sounds like a great workshop…makes me wish I’d of been there…especially since I love children and libraries! ;)

    It takes a lot of classroom management skill to handle the kids when a lesson makes them “crazy”, “absolutely wild”, and “wouldn’t have been able to sit still.” Are you sure you are ready to take it to the next level, ladies?

    And they actually call that…music?

    I’m surprised at this only because of the time frame. For a long time now, for some reason adults have taken the tack with children that they need to be as loud as possible when expressing themselves — possibly because this shows self-confidence. That being so excited they’re “crazy” etc., is a sign of engagement. I pity the more naturally reticent child in today’s environment.

    I’ve been to these kinds of workshops, where the instructor does an absolutely fantastic job, and you just can’t wait to get back home to replicate it in your own environment… Unfortunately, it never seems to come out as magnificent as you expect. But practice helps, and it’s great to have the ideas.

    My experience with kids is that if there is something that engages them which they love, that is when kids are the best-behaved.
    You must be much older than I am. I’m now in my 60s, and I remember how embarassed I was way back in grade school, when we had ‘field trips’ to the symphony and they played music familiar to kids. Most of my fellow 3rd graders were jumping around and dancing, or shouting words to songs; there weren’t enough teachers to keep all of them in line. And the people who had paid for the afternoon concert were fairly disgusted with us…

    Man, this is turning into the Elly and Claire show and I like it! But where will it lead? Lingerie shopping maybe?

    In my small town, tract house neighborhood growing up there were a lot of beautiful mothers who had trouble reaching out to women. They had similar characteristics of shyness, introversion and a lack of education. One of my friend’s mother actually looked like Liz Taylor with her eyebrows and dark hair and cool, elegant style. She just didn’t speak correct English. And there were others, too, who slept all day and their kids were angry. They were beautiful and socializing had always been easy for them. Next door, the woman of the house looked like a young Jane Wyatt with wide-spaced eyes and delicate frame. But she really was painfully shy. My mother couldn’t even let my dad in the yard or he would stare blatantly and uncontrollably if she was out and about.

    “In fourth grade we would lay our heads on our desks and listen to wonderful orchestral music. “March of the Toreadors” for one.”

    We waited for 12th grade for that.
