Are you looking for an authentically Catholic curriculum and method for teaching music to children? Something that’s practical, fun, and helps children to grow in love of the Church’s sacred music? This bonus episode looks at the history of the development of the Ward method, its underlying educational principles, its place in Catholic education, and the experience both of those who learn to teach with the method, as well as that of children who learn music using the method. Our guest is Mr. Kevin Collins, an NYC actor and father.
