 Workshops for teachers

 Since 1993, Jim has worked with teachers from many school systems in
 southwestern Ohio to raise their awareness of the arts in and around them, and how to use the arts to help deliver course content in creative and effective ways. The length of workshops is flexible.

 "Am I an Artist?" is especially effective for teachers who do not feel
 connected to the arts in any special way, with the goal in mind that once
 they see their own relationship to the arts on several levels, they will be
 much more inclined to use artistic elements in their teaching practices.

"The Science of Music for Teachers" is a workshop
designed to demonstrate
the many connections between
the musical arts and many
branches of science. Teachers
get hands-on experience
with musical instruments and
electronic equipment.
No special training in either
music or science is required.

 Jim's newest workshop is called "Strumming the Standards," and was
 recently developed under the guidance of Kennedy Center trainers. In this 'hands-on" experience, Jim teaches ukulele basics to teachers (no previous
 musical experience required!) and how to incorporate the playing of this
 instrument into content delivery in the classroom.

 Comments from teachers:

"A super day - I enjoyed all the projects...he made a very "safe" environment for all of us." "Being an artist is fun and something I look forward to sharing with my students and staff." "Such fun! Exceptional presenter!" "He made you feel like you have artistic ability in a
risk-free environment."
