About Mr. Little

 

Jeremy Little - Choir 

An advocate for a deeper rehearsal learning experience, Jeremy Little (Vernon Hills H.S.) has presented at numerous education conferences and workshops in Illinois and Wisconsin. He also enjoys spending as much time as possible with his wonderful family: beautiful wife Andrea, silly son Elliot, and feisty daughter Evelyn!  

He has had the privilege of teaching at Vernon Hills H.S. and at Milwaukee Lutheran H.S. and holds degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He has been the guest conductor for festivals across Lake County, the ILMEA District VII Junior High Honors chorus, and conducted his own choral and orchestral students in the world-premiere of Robert Convery's "Working Girls" at the 2013 Illinois Music Education Conference.

Academically, he is involved in teaching the Comprehensive Musicianship through Performance model (www.ilcmp.org) to music educators across this state and has had contributed chapters in two recent publications: "Feedback: The Hinge that Joins Teaching and Learning" by Jane E. Pollock, and "The Power of the Social Brain: Teaching, Learning and Interdependent Thinking" edited by Arthur Costa and Pat Wilson-O'Leary. His recent article "Plant, Water, and Harvest:How Younger Students and Emerging Student-Teachers Think and Grow" was recently featured in ChorTeach, the ACDA's National Online Publication.
