Resilience: Dr. Smith and members of the Chorus lead worship

October 28, 2020 | Jessica Smith

What does it mean to be resilient? Dr. Smith and members of the Mustard Seed Chorus lead us in a time of worship.  And, demonstrating resilience, they perform “Resilience” by Abbie Betinis.  This is a song that they learned during a time when they could not sing in person together because of safety reasons.

Jessica Smith

Music Teacher, Preschool and Grades 6-8; Worship Coordinator

With more than 20 years experience teaching music in a variety of settings from elementary to college, Dr. Jessica Smith has a deep love for music education, integrated arts curriculum, world music, and worship.
Recently Smith traveled to Ghana to study West African drumming and dance as part of a fellowship from Fund for Teachers. In 2015, she completed four years of training to become a Guild Certified Feldenkrais™ Practitioner, a method that uses neuroscience and movement as a catalyst for potent learning. As a clinician, Smith has led workshops in vocal studies and drum circle facilitation. Before coming to Mustard Seed School in 2008, Smith was the Director of Preparatory & Continuing Studies at the University of Houston’s Moores School of Music where she also served as a Visiting Professor.

Dr. Smith enjoys traveling and spending too much money on plants at the Union Square Greenmarket.
