Four Enduring Principles for Creating an Impassioned, Innovative, and Thriving Community

  • thumbnail for Patricia Hoy
  • Teacher turnover, student retention, and public support remain important issues in music education. This session will introduce an expansive body of knowledge from the artistic process to help you sustain your own passion, motivate and retain students, and create advocacy messages to garner public support. Rehearsal and performance experiences can help you create dynamic learning environments that enable students to embrace change, see the bigger picture, and use knowledge that’s learned.
