Music with Gina Ferragame
On October 10th and October 17th, Gina Ferragame visited our 7th and 8th graders to lead them in music activities aimed at fostering community spirit. As a singer-songwriter, music therapist, and community music facilitator, Gina has extensive experience using music to bring people together. She connects with her audiences through her careful selection of music, by using strategies to engage them, and carefully responding to their manner of participation. The 7th and 8th graders are exploring the many functions of music beyond entertainment and are currently designing music assembly programs that could be used to foster community spirit. In December, they will travel to our Cutler Campus and assist Mr. Tim in leading a school assembly, based on their suggested programs to celebrate our ROS community. Stay tuned!
