MUSICAL LIFE"How I Met My Teacher"remembers Donna Wood 1920-2001BY MJBUELLWe must have a light touch and a special sense of humour. Takemusic seriously, but don't take yourself too seriously ...(Donna Wood in her book for teachers: Move, Listen, Sing, Play)Music's Child for October, Angele Dubeau (see page 10) speaksardently about a first teacher whose teaching method included ensembleplaying from the (then radical and new) Suzuki method, tojoyfully engage children in sharing music so that music would alwayshave a place in their lives ... "Jean Cousineau 's approach was to putin each child this little spark ... " she says.Her remark made me think of someone who, directly or indirectly,was the first teacher of my own children who today are all diverselybut intensely musical and musically appreciative. Each ofthem attended classes, from the age of 3, called "Preparatory Music"taught either by Donna Wood, or by a teacher trained by Donna.A few days after speaking with Ms Dubeau I was saddened to hearthat Donna Wood died on October 7, at the age of 87. Many are feelingthis loss: colleagues, former students and their parents, andformer students who became teachers, or better teachers.Born in 1920, in Saskatoon, Donna Wood came to Toronto in thelate 1930s on a scholarship, and graduated from the Royal Conservatoryof Music. She later certified as an Early Childhood Educator,Institute of Child Study, U ofT.As an RCM student Donna began teaching at St. Christopher SettlementHouse in Kensington Market. Years of practical experiencein inner-city day care and co-op nursery schools inspired her to developPreparatory Music classes at the Conservatory for childrenaged 3 to 7 and Music with your Baby classes for parents and theirchildren aged 6-36 months.Donna taught courses in teacher training, gave workshops acrossCanada for teachers and caregivers, and presented papers at theInternational Society of Music Education (ISME) in the USA, Austria,Hungary, Australia, and Finland.
