"I believe students learn best when they are presented with material that is relevant to their lives and experiences. In my classroom students are offered opportunities to demonstrate individual talents and are provided with an environment in which to learn that is respectful, safe, and enjoyable. The content of my diverse curriculum includes music that is cultural, classical, and contemporary. The passion that I have for music of all styles is constantly on display. By being exposed to these genres, students develop an understanding of the link between music and world around them." Ryan Meisel 2016.
