Greetings, I’m Kim Lundgren – a Regional Representative for Practicing Musician’s Professional Development Roundtable and a National Board Certified Teacher in Music.
As a kid, making music is why I wanted to go to school every day. I loved the sound of beautiful melodies, interesting harmonies, complex rhythm, and the feel of music around me as I played in my school band and orchestra. It’s why I decided to be music educator. Music education supports student success in all content areas. Comprehensive music education programs help students develop creativity, collaboration skills, self control, positive self expression, organization, and it’s FUN. It’s still fun to make music, and technology supporting music educators has changed a lot.
