You can read a little about Colin below and see some free samples of all six books by using the links below his bio…
Colin Price qualified originally as an artist in England in 1962, with a focus on painting. He followed that with a training as a Public School teacher, and subsequently taught in three different Public Schools. Dissatisfied with the lack of real pedagogy and insight into the growing child, he found his way to Emerson College where he took a Waldorf teacher-training under that inspiring individual Francis Edmunds.
Colin has been active ever since, both as a class teacher and a subject teacher. He has taken three whole classes through their eight years of elementary schooling from grade 1 to grade 8, as is the practice in Waldorf Schools, and has picked up two others in their middle school years. In 1980, he emigrated with his wife and children to Canada, and has given talks and workshops in several major cities in North America. He is currently teaching at the Merriconeag Waldorf School in Freeport, Maine, USA.
As parents, Colin and his wife Siegrun have had their two children go right through from Kindergarten to graduation from their twelfth grade classes, and have experienced as many questions along the route as do most parents.
Colin has had three other books published, the Waldorf songbook “Let’s Sing and Celebrate! – Vol.1” the book of Waldorf class plays “Let’s Do a Play! – Vol.1” and the middle school musical “The Duchess’ Bath.” Many of his original songs have now been printed in sheet-music format, and are available to school choirs, parent groups and singing organizations, from Songbird Press.
