I have to teach music??? I have to teach music!!! This session will turn your question marks into exclamation marks and fill your OT tool kit with songs, games and activities appropriate for music class and beyond. Appropriate for LTOs and Daily OTs, those with musical experience and those looking to acquire some! 🙂
