  • thumbnail for Jeffrey Loeffert
  • Dr. Loeffert will share the materials and curricula that made him a successful private teacher during his undergraduate work. Topics include how to design a 20-, 30-, 45-, and 60-minute lesson plan; scope and sequence in the short and long term; lesson partners; and effective communication with the band director and parents. In addition, he will share his thoughts on how the private teaching experience makes one a more attractive candidate for a full-time classroom position.
