Emily Jones - Ready To Teach
August 29, 2013 09:45 AM
VanderCook is a great school! The fact that we learned everything, (instrumental, choral, orchestral, general music, etc.) has prepared me so much for my first teaching job. I am the general music teacher at Bright Elementary and Sunman Elementary in Indiana. Even though my students are young, the same concepts and ideas we learned at VanderCook apply to them. Their level of understanding may be different but the information is still the same. VanderCook did a great job of preparing us with the essential information and teaching us how to share it with all different age levels. I credit much of my success to VanderCook. I learned to be a teacher. I learned about myself. And, I was always reminded why I went into music. The professors are amazing and the staff is wonderful. VanderCook will always be a home for me and I am so grateful I had the opportunity to be a part of its great community.
