After hearing of the recent passing of Denise Gagne, a truly wonderful leader in Music Education, we share our condolences and gratitude for everything that Denise shared in her leadership and teaching.

Thank you, Denise, for all you have done to improve and advocate for the power and beauty in high-quality Music Education and Orff arrangements all around the world.

And just like your wonderful song, ‘Falling Leaves’, may you find peace and love in your gentle melody, forever making music among the beautiful leaves of the Canadian forests. And we will think of you as we sing this floating tune, watching our trees start to change between the Noongar seasons of Bunuru and Djeran.
