A few years ago I was lucky enough to attend a symposium with a wide variety of teaching ideas being shared. While I learned a great deal in my few days there, my favorite part was definitely the writing portion that centered around using music.
We were then given five minutes to create our own “Top Ten List” of songs. It didn’t matter what we put on the list – but we needed our top ten. Want to play along? Go ahead – make your top ten. I can wait…
This is the portion of the session where I realized just how valuable using music to write was, as I started to cry. I sat there silently crying, but writing furiously. I was embarrassed, but kept my head down and continued to write.
