Past Scholarship Winner: Aaron Ford

I was thrilled to be chosen as this year’s recipient of the AOSA Professional Development Conference scholarship for first time attendees. I’m grateful and proud that our NYCCAOSA chapter so generously supports ongoing teacher development. The conference was held in downtown Nashville, a city steeped in musical talent and history. We had a very respectable contingent of folks from our own chapter and I had the opportunity to deepen my connection with several of them. I also so enjoyed reconnecting with several friends and teachers from different Levels courses. One of the performance highlights was attending the concert of the Fisk Jubilee Singers. If you haven’t heard this group or it’s history it is well worth checking out. My co- teacher Sheri Gottlieb and I also attended a wonderful Recorder Ensemble concert and came away inspired to try new things with our Grade 4 Recorder Ensemble at LREI. The workshops were stimulating and full of the best that we love about Orff, from dramatizing a mini-book version of Moby Dick (yes, accomplished beautifully in less than an hour) to creating movement pieces with hand drums.
