Music Moments at Apollo School
"There is a powerful magic in moving to the music of one's own singing.
This magic has been felt throughout time and in every country in the world." Carl Orff
Hello! My name is Jennifer Schramm. I am married and have 3 lovely children. I also have 3 wonderful grandchildren who are growing up fast! I love my family.
I also love to watch birds, enjoy butterfly gardening, gong on trips to the Chicago Botanic Gardens, playing piano and ukulele, taking walks, quilting, practicing yoga and of course, teaching music!
Teaching for over 30 years, I have spent the last 14 years teaching at EMSD63. My approach to learning is through active music making. To further my understanding of how children learn, I studied Orff in Chicago at DePaul University and VanderCook School of Music. I studied Kodaly in Colorado at Colorado State College and in Wisconsin at Silver Lake College.
I have also served on the Board of the Greater Chicago Orff Association for the last 15 years as Program Chair. as well as presenting Active Music Making to music teachers throughout the MIDWEST.
