When We Change the Way We Look at Things, the Things We Look at Change

  • thumbnail for Tim Lautzenheiser
  • This clinic will focus on the important role music educators play in the positive growth and development of their students. Optimum learning happens in a safe, challenging, and encouraging environment. If we are to tap into the intrinsic motivation of our students we must establish a forum-of-learning that opens their hearts as well as their minds. Music is an expressionistic subject affording each student the chance to explore his/her unlimited artistic potential.
