Bruce teaches music at The Mabin School with a focus on the Orff approach. Bruce is an Orff specialist twice over and has served in various leadership roles with Carl Orff Canada. Prior to returning to teaching, Bruce worked in the music industry. Known as “The Orff Doctor” in North American music educator circles, for many years he was the number one resource for elementary music teachers who needed advice about instruments, resources and repairs.
Bruce’s music room is a safe and inspiring space where students creatively explore the elements of music through improvisation, composition, and storytelling. His mindfulness training is reflected in breathing, listening and movement exercises embedded in the instruction.
Bruce’s hobbies include running, cycling, bow ties and silly socks.
