Ms. Brue highlighted in her application to the AAE Foundation that she is excited to start a recorder club at Wagonwheel Elementary because of the unique opportunity that students have to develop their music literacy skills. Ms. Brue noted that a group like the recorder club at her school “is not offered in any other city in the state.”
In addition to offering recorder activities for students, the recorder club in a “Parent University” class allows students and their parents to engage in recorder activities together. Once Ms. Brue gets the recorder club off the ground, she plans to have students in the recorder club perform in the community.
Congratulations to Ms. Brue for her excellence in teaching and for her commitment to strengthening music education in her community!
