THAT Wasn't In The Book! Lessons After 2 Years of Teaching

Clinic Synopsis:

Undergraduate music education programs typically focus on preparing young directors for the instructional challenges of the performance music classroom. Often, there is not enough time for these programs to attend to the numerous other skills necessary to successfully execute a quality performance music program. The purpose of this clinic is to share the experiences and challenges we faced and what we learned from them.
