Music hath charms

the Inland Register

(From the October 16, 2014 edition of the Inland Register)

Jayne Rosenberg is the new music teacher this year at St. Mary School in Spokane Valley, teaching music in the afternoons and fourth grade in the mornings. She calls her music instruction approach a “more hands-on, active approach to fulfill the music requirements, versus the traditional approach.” The fifth-sixth grade music students call themselves “The Bucket Brigade.” The students bring in a five-gallon bucket and use rolled-up newspaper and duct tape as their sticks to create a unique drumming sound. Rosenberg’s approach was inspired by her previous marching band and drum line experience during her student days, and the budding musicians at St. Mary are thrilled with their own progress.
