Thread Name: How many mudcatters are teachers?
Subject: RE: How many mudcatters are teachers?
I'm a retired Kindergarten teacher. And "my kids" learned their share of folk music.... and loved it. Parents were amazed at how many verses of those songs their 5 year old kids could sing. They could sing Rattlin' Bog and keep track of those verses better than I !!! Then I taught Kindermusik to preschoolers for a couple of years.... and the Kindermusik Program is based on traditional music from around the world. Now I'm totally retired and belong to our local folk music society and spend my time teaching hammered dulcimer, playing that and Celtic harp and other assorted instruments. I just teach my grandkids now.
