Coty says, "Hi everyone! I was a featured guest on the Waves of Joy Podcast with my friend, Brenda Winkle. We met for lunch and recorded this episode in person and we had so much fun. We talk afriendship, choral music, balance, building healthy relationships, personal responsibility and social justice. Brenda told me, "Coty, you think so quickly it is a true joy to be in conversation with you. You always blow me away with how effortlessly you can weave a theme into a conversation that makes any topic - even tough ones - so relatable and easy to understand." I think you'll really enjoy listening to the podcast and hope you go listen."

EPISODE 42: Music in School

Posted by Howard Blumenthal on April 28, 2021 at 8:13pm

Continuing our series about subjects taught to K-12 students in school, we ask questions about why and how music is taught to children and teenagers. Given the wide range of contemporary thinking about individual identity, heritage, and global citizenship, our conversation covers more than the usual U.S. curriculum. Our guests include Steve Wilder Blumenthal, a composer working in television, film, commercials, and videogames (Steve also composed the music for Reinventing School); high school teacher and Marching Band Director Scott Slutter in Pennsylvania (who taught Steve Blumenthal, and inspired him to pursue a career in music); Alice Tsui, Founding Music Teacher and Arts Coordinator at PS 532 New Bridges Elementary, an arts-integrated public elementary school in Crown Heights, Brooklyn; Coty Raven Morris, Director of Choirs at Crosby High School in the Houston area, and Brandi Waller-Pace, Founder and Executive Director of Decolonizing the Music Room.
