How do parents and teachers work together to challenge young musicians at PS 51?

Toya Tokuya (Saiki's dad) came to teach a master class on improvisation to our Orff Ensemble this past Tuesday during our parental engagement time. It was without a doubt the most incredible playing experience our kids have had yet this year. They were stunned at his abilities and couldn't stop asking questions.

I wish I would have gotten the whole discussion and teaching part on video, but we only got the ending performance where he accompanied them as they improvised in a rondo form. It was truly amazing. WOW.  Katie Traxler
