Visiting pros share about music in their lives

The reviews are in, and all enjoyed a special activity that capped off Music in Our Schools Month at Schoharie Central.

On March 28, students in grades 5-8 participated in a Music in Our Lives panel discussion in the high school auditorium with local music professionals from a variety of disciplines and genres.

Panelists included humorous singer-songwriter Drew Jacobs, College of Saint Rose professor and Steinway artist Young Kim, certified music therapist and piano instructor Beth McLaughlin, vocalist/DJ/emcee Raphel Peralta and composer and College of Saint Rose professor Bruce Craig Roter.

The panelists shared when they first became interested in music, artists who inspired them and how music is part of their lives today. The students learned about writing, performing and tapping into music as a career and for enjoyment.

The students listened to music performed or composed by the panelists and asked them a range of questions. After the assembly, a number of the students met with the panelists in the high school cafeteria where they talked with them one-to-one and in small groups.

Music teacher Carrie Styles coordinated the event, working with the panelists, fellow SCS staff members and the students to produce a fun, positive and musical learning experience.
