Our Winter Gala production this year was a delightful celebration of music for all ages, with our students performing hit songs from favorite Disney movies and Broadway shows! The final production of the show was full of heart and dazzling costumes, but it was a long road to get to that last bow. What, exactly, goes into creating a musical revue performance at BASIS Independent Fremont?
In this series, we sit down with our teachers and ask them about their experiences teaching at BASIS Independent Fremont, what motivates them, and some other fun questions. Today we talk with Mr. Michael Barbarino, our Music Subject Expert Teacher.
What do you enjoy the most about teaching at BASIS Independent Fremont?
I enjoy working in a collaborative environment. BASIS Independent Fremont encourages teachers to work together so students can see the connection from class to class. BASIS Independent Fremont also allows teachers to have autonomy in the classroom. I enjoy being able to teach using materials I think are best suited for music education.
What do you hope students take away from your classes?
Inspired by the blissful feeling of uncovering connections, our blog Eureka! Fremont is about sharing moments that capture the essence of what it is to be a BASIS Independent student, teacher, administrator, or family.
