Music is My Life

Friday, January 25, 2013 by Teacher Talk

Music classes will never be the same for me again. I have a music and theatre degree and I have been singing and dancing my whole life but one little girl changed that for me. I just recently have taken over the Music Classes from a woman who has been teaching the classes for over 2 years years. I have a 5 year old in my Music III class. She has been coming to Gymboree play classes since she was 1 year old and has never stopped. She came in the other day and told me that when we rock back and forth to the music it is not called rocking. I than asked her what it meant. She said it was "Doing and Mary." (The child's name is Mary.) I then looked at her mother in which she replied that when Mary dances she rocks back a forth and the previous teacher called rocking doing a Mary and everyone in the class knew what that meant. I was almost in tears. It was so cute to see her face and then during class when it came to rocking I just smiled and said, "Alright, let rock or do the Mary." What a great day.
