Enjoyed working with student culture and the Fine Arts Director my supervisor and coworker made the work a fun atmosphere
Fine Arts Assistant (Former Employee) – Albion, MI – February 12, 2015
Typical day at work was to run music sessions guitar lessons or piano lessons, and group music therapy session I would pick up and transport and return students to school who were scheduled for the sessions. Each day of my week was a different session or a choir or drama rehearsal on Thursday evenings every week. On Fridays I would instruct two group sessions at one hour each of Pottery/Slip Casting, and two group sessions at one hour each of Rhythm and Moves sessions. That is low impact movement with popular music, drum sticks, exercise ball and a bucket. Commonly known as Drums Alive.
The Fine Arts Department consisted of a team of two. Myself and the Fine Arts Director. We had a wonderful working relationship.
The enjoyable part of my job was to see the students faces light up when they accomplish a task in the arts, discovering they could sing act or draw would always choke me up.
The hardest part was honestly have any of the one hour sessions end. Mainly because it was all therapeutic and each day or week we never knew what new discoveries or progress was going to be expressed.
