Frank Leto Workshop for Montessori & ECE Teachers
Sat, 8 April 2017, 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM PDT
British Columbia Montessori Association proudly presents a workshop led by Frank Leto. Frank has great ideas to share and his own classroom experience to tell you about. If you are still needing professional development hours to renew your ECE accreditation this workshop will earn you 7 hours for participating. A beautiful, catered buffet lunch served by the Fire Fighters Banquet Hall is included in the low price of $100. for BCMA members and $150. for non-members.
Come dressed in casual, comfortable clothing and be ready for some fun with Frank.
Frank will bring some of his music CD's to sell, and we will also have a few Montessori Venders to shop from. Space is limited so please sign up early if you are interested.
In 1975 Frank Leto became Montessori certified. He has taught at Montessori schools in Michigan, St. Thomas, San Francisco Bay Area, Hawaii and New Mexico. Dr. Maria Montessori's philosophy on education inspired Frank to develop a similar approach in music education.
While in the Virgin Islands, Frank saw his first steel band. As an ORFF music instructor, he knew instantly that it would be easy for children to successfully play these instruments. For over twenty years, Frank has arranged and directed steel bands for children. They have performed in Disneyland, Disney World, Epcot Center, Washington DC, Universal Studios and educational conferences across the country.
Frank Leto is a multidimensional artist who has found a balance between professional musician and professional educator. His lifelong pursuit of musical knowledge has led him to appreciate the music of many cultures. Frank's talent as a composer has allowed him to share this love for music with his peers, students and community.
Frank's clinics promote his own approach to imparting the love of music on to children. His interactive workshops for teachers are designed for non-musicians. In the course of a single workshop, attendees are singing, dancing and playing instruments with a new sense of confidence. With newly learned skills they enthusiastically return to the classroom and enrich the children's musical environment.
