First Teaching Day Plans

Tomorrow (Wednesday) or today, if you don’t read this until Wednesday – is my first teaching day at school.

While I have taught children’s piano lessons before, and while I have observed children’s general music classes, this is my first time to ever actually BE the music teacher. I’ve compiled a list of things I plan to do on my first day:

1.  Give a college level music theory placement exam (I realize these are K-5th kids, but hey, there’s no point babying them);

2.  Have them listen to 10 minutes of Mozart;

3.  Give a short, but dramatic sermon on the evils of country music;

4. End by singing a moving and inspiring children’s song, which I learned from Phoebe while watching “Friends:”

Oh the cow in the meadow goes “Moo”

Oh the cow in the meadow goes “Moo”

Then the farmer hits him on the head and grinds him up

And that’s how we get hamburger.

Now…. chickens!

    Aha! Are you the one responsible for taking KZLA off the air and replacing it with Rick Dees and old disco music??????

    Another good cow song which you might like, by the Arrogant Worms, a good Canadian band. Imagine it anthem-like.

    I am Cow
    Hear me moo
    I weigh twice as much as you
    And I look good on the barbecue

    Yogurt, curd, cream cheese, and butter’s
    Made from liquid from my udders
    I am cow,
    I am cow, hear me moo!

    (there’s more…)
