About Craig


Bio

I taught grades 5-12 for thirty-two years. During those years, my primary focus was to make the subject matter as clear as possible for my students. Whether the subject was math, history, science or instrumental lessons, the students needed to see a logical, clear progression that led them from where they were to where they needed to be. My greatest reward was seeing their faces coming alive with understanding!

I taught grades 5-12 for thirty-two years. During those years, my primary focus was to make the subject matter as clear as possible for my students. Whether the subject was math, history, science or instrumental lessons, the students needed to see a logical, clear progression that led them from where they were to where they needed to be. My greatest reward was seeing their faces coming alive with understanding!

History, to me, was never about the facts. Rather, yes it WAS facts, but history is so much more. If all a student ever learned about history was a dull recital of the facts, they never learned history at all. I very much enjoyed "putting flesh on the bones," as it were, helping the students understand not just WHAT happened but WHY it happened, and what the ramifications might be for us today.

Music history is part and parcel of music appreciation. To truly understand music, you need to know where it came from--its roots, so to speak. Today's music did not simply appear on the world stage. It has roots that stretch back for hundreds of years, and studying those roots helps us better understand and appreciate our music today.

I am looking forward to being able to share my love of history and music and learning with you. Please get in touch with me at your earliest convenience to "get the ball rolling!"

Music History

I was a high school band director for 26 years. An integral part of the music I chose was making sure we had as wide a variety of music--from as many different eras--as was possible and as budget allowed. Rehearsal time was also teaching time, as a knowledge of the music made for a better performance of it. I also taught a music history course for a number of years. This course brought the students from the music of the Middle Ages all the way to modern forms of music.
