(KPLR) –  We often think of teaching being the traditional subjects – math, science, social studies, English, but equally as important is music education.  This month, we’re pleased to be able to showcase a music teacher in our Tools for Teachers program sponsored by Weber Cheverolet.

Matt Edmundson, or “Mr. Eddie” as his students call him, is a music teacher at Wildhorse Elementary School in the Rockwood School District.  Mr. Eddie finds very interesting and innovative ways to use music education to inspire his students – including the reason for his Mohawk.

He was nominated by a former co-worker, Mia Fusco, both join us today!
