About The Teacher
The history and culture of Scotland make a great foundation for teaching about traditions through music, dance, arts and language. Scottish immigration is a part of American history and a played a huge role in American folk music.
The music and dance of Scotland are familiar, yet unique. With instruments like the Bagpipe and Bodhran the students are engaged. With the variety of dance styles found in Scottish culture, the movement is a natural progression to feeling the stylistic rhythmic approach to Scottish Folk music. The history of the folk music in Scotland teaches the students about who the Scottish people are and how they have expressed themselves through out time.
