Presented by Erica Bridge

Using a variety of children's literacy and poetry as inspiration, participants will explore incorporating it into the media of the Schulwerk. We will also discuss incorporating authentic assessments into the musical process. We will be singing, dancing, moving, and playing, so come ready to bring literature to life!

She has her Masters in Choral Conducting from central Michigan University, and has completed Level I, II, III, and Masterclass in Orff Schulwerk. Erica is a regular local, state, and national presenter for AOSA and will be publishing an article in the MME state journal on Authentic Assessments in the Orff Process later in 2017.
