Island Living - Detroit PBS Segment
Detroit PBS visited the Erie Island and produced a segment on Island Life. They interviewed Kelleys Island Music Teacher, CC Wisniewski and talked about teaching on an island, history of Kelleys Island School, transportation to her class on Kelleys Island and then took time to interview our Kelleys Island students.
Meet… Coralee Wisniewski, Music Teacher, Kelleys Island School
Ms. Coralee Wisniewski is the music teacher at Kelleys Island Schools. She focuses on “building students who are tuneful, beautiful, and artful!” She has the younger kids focus on different things from the older kids, and says that music itself is “an outstanding medium. It gives people something with emotion, structure, creativity, and so much more.” Miss W, in addition, says that the most important thing about music is that there is something for everyone to appreciate, as well as the “acceptance and exploration of all styles of music…” When asked if she had a preferred genre or instrument that she particularly favored, Miss W said, “Personally, I love playing the flute and the ukulele. As far as genre of music, I listen to many different styles. Most often, I probably listen to indie, pop, or Irish folk and rock.” And with planning for the future, she hopes to see students “exploring more music both in and out of school.”
