My name is Bee. I am a music teacher, involved in a marching/dancing band, and a making things enthusiast. I run, though not very fast and really, really enjoy a good nap.
I’ve been involved in music my whole life, starting piano lessons when I was just four. From that humble beginning I’ve played in school bands, achieved a grade 8 piano certificate from the Royal Conservatory of Music, studied music in university and become a band teacher. I also sang in choirs, performed musical theatre and danced in several ballets somewhere in there.
I have a Bachelor of Music Education with a minor in Visual Arts. This education leads me to teach Elementary Music, Band and Music Technology, but I’ve also taught Art, Choir, Drama, English, Health, Science, Social Studies, Math, Phys Ed, and Religion. In the 6 short years that I’ve been a teacher I’ve taught every grade offered in my province with the exception of kindergarten.
Now – the reason for starting a blog. I really like to make stuff – all kinds of stuff. I want to share my adventures and experiences in making things through writing. I’ve recently found the world of blogs, and really enjoy finding good instructions about how to make things, but also the narrative of the bloggers. I plan to blog my way through anything and everything that strikes my fancy: baking and cooking, but also arts and crafts, gardening, music and education. I want to experience anything and everything that interests me: find things that make me happy, do them, and document all of these adventures with my camera and blog.
Welcome to what I hope will be a great place for me to gather my memories of my making things adventures.
