I have been teaching Band, Choir, Elementary Music and RTI for more than 16 years in the Texas public school system. I possess degrees in music performance, music education, general education, and a master's degree in Educational Leadership and Administration with an all-level principal certification.
Learning should be fun. It should thoughtfully target the needs of the student with the student being unaware or minimally aware that "work" is taking place. Kids learn when its fun and they remember more when it is personal. I choose to know my students and know when to play and when to guide them to more focused practice.
