Getting a thread going to have Educators be in touch and sharing ideas for student curriculum and to support each other across the world with the growth of Fungi in the classroom from K-University and beyond.
I would be interested in hearing from other educators too. I direct a community music school in Illinois. Our program centralizes ensemble-playing, and individual lessons prioritize musical ensemble techniques; we have a faculty of 26 teaching artists in a wide range of music disciplines; we recognize that community mental health, environmental sustainability, aesthetics, and education in creative techniques are interrelated, and since our founding in 2006 we have been groping our way toward a music eduction model that can keep the large picture front and center. Music ed is a notoriously moribund field (think of the mean piano teacher who slaps fingers, or the exhausted middle school instructor who tries to teach rounds to kids who rap on the playground.) I am interested in communicating with other educators who may incorporate a psychedelic-inspired worldview into their work. Thanks!
