The Two Sides of the Recruitment and Retention Coin: Proactive Strategies for Sustaining Teachers and Students in Music Education
- Recruitment and retention of high quality music educators is at the core of every great music program. The first portion of our clinic will focus on the reasons for teacher attrition as well as multiple proactive strategies that increase music educator longevity in our school communities. The second segment of the clinic will focus on strategies to implement effective student recruitment efforts, and provide the means to create an actionable retention plan to maximize student involvement.
