Video: Our 6th, 7th & 8th Graders Perform “Thuma Mina”
As the teacher of music at Da Vinci Waldorf School, I am always intrigued to see what the work of our classes together will become. As I often say at class meetings, we are not so much working on the art of musical instruction, as we are working to nourish the soul. The music, and musical knowledge, are simply a by-product of that process. When we hear the students perform at the annual concert, we are reminded (through lovely sound) of the quest of the soul of man. In the words of Rudolf Steiner: “The students seek the light of the soul, just as the plants seek the light of the sun and without it they will perish.” As always, it is an honor to enjoy such a lively and nourishing work.
