Who is Sarah Fard?
I am a music educator with over a decade of experience.
However, my time spent working as a classroom assistant with autistic students opened my eyes to how a lack of teacher support and training deprives some students of a music education.
I choose to work in inclusive music education because I believe that music teachers want every student to have access to music making.
They don't always have the support or tools to do so, and I want to change that.
As a consultant and professor, I believe it is crucial for me to continue working in the field of public education in order to keep my pedagogy meaningful for teachers like you.
You may be familiar with the terms special education, or special needs in music education. The term self advocates and professionals use is inclusive education.
I am passionate about inclusive music education and have the expertise to help your classroom succeed.
Inclusive music education
• Meets the unique needs of every student
• Builds on the skills and strengths of the student
• Reduces stigma
• Is more effective for a learning environment
• Uses adaptive approaches so that all students can develop their musicianship
Interested in increasing your efficacy and building an exciting education for all students? I am glad our paths have crossed!
Inclusive education means every one of our students can reach the same goal.
