Welcome back to my journey into understanding coaches! Just kidding! This show is and will always be about teaching creative and I'm so honoured to have this week on the pod someone who is educating the most creative humans, babies! And teaching nothing other than music. Yes, you read correctly. Ekanem is musician and musical educator for babies and very young kids. Music was always a part of her life but it wasn't until her mentor suggested this path that she ventured into creating her own curriculum. Come and listen to her amazing journey!
On this interview we spoke about:
- Her very musical upbringing
- How one comment from her mentor changed everything for her
- How she put together her own apprenticeship by following her curiosity
- Finding a treasure chest of knowledge
- The documentary she is working on
- The ups and down of teaching through a screen
- Her experience getting a PhD
