Welcome message from Ginger Littleton

Welcome to the Western division of OAKE!

Ginger Littleton, OAKE Western Division President

he chapters in our division represent members from the Rocky Mountains west to the Pacific, from Canada south to Mexico. We are all ages and all backgrounds, but we all have been drawn to the Kodaly philosophy of teaching. We probably have the greatest number of square miles in our division and so communication in cyber-space is a tremendous tool for us.

I hope that we will grow to use this website to advertise workshops, conferences, teaching jobs, cool ideas for teaching “re”, difficulties that we encounter with our curriculum as well as celebrations of wonderful ideas in our classroom.

Our inland states provide the source for many mighty rivers in the United States.. Some areas nourish the creeks and some see the final mighty river. Let us all nourish the musical souls in our lives and create a mighty flow of joyful music!

Western Division President
