  • Most music educators have little time for reflection about the big picture of their program. This session will help attendees "see the forest for the trees," and better understand not only WHAT to teach, but WHY and HOW we teach it. Great programs require engaged, energized and effective students who want to learn. How do excellent teachers know when their students are ready to learn? This session will help directors take their students and their programs to the next level.
