Freedom and Joy: Exploring Innovative Ways to Be a Music Educator
with Dr. Jody Graves, NCTM and Forrest Kinney, NCTM
Are your lessons joyous? Creative? Or do you feel enclosed in a box, striving to be correct, or begging students to practice? There are so many joyous ways to be a music teacher that we were never taught, and often basic musicianship and skills that are crucial for learning and playing the great repertoire are sacrificed along the way. Spend a liberating and lively day with Jody and Forrest exploring the options!
