  1. Thank you for all that you have provided to the Music Education community! Your ressources are fantastic.

    I am a music teacher in St. John’s, NL, Canada. I teach in a French first language school. I have been using your version of the Seven Jumps for early elementary for some time. I have just recently discovered your versions of the traditional dances from Quebec. I am very excited to use them in my class room. I am sure as I continue to comb your videos, I will continue to find ressources that I can use even in a francophone setting.

    With gratitude,
    Heather Carrier
