Music Education done differently.
The arts and sciences must coexist today to create tomorrow's creative and innovative workforce.
Music educator, author, and space enthusiast, Laurie Orth, had the out-of-the-box idea that perhaps her students would participate more in music class if they had music about space and rockets. Inspired by NASA’s STEM education website, with countless STEM lesson ideas for educators, she decided to create her own space-themed recorder music.
After incorporating the space music, Laurie found that her students were more attentive and eager to learn. The combination of the two contrasting disciplines of music and space exploration kept everyone 100% engaged in class. They increased their music reading abilities without even realizing it.
