Program Notes Podcast Live: A Practical Guide for Novice Directors

  • thumbnail for John Denis
  • This clinic will provide direct and usable information based on research and real-world experiences regarding skills, techniques, and issues related to the first years of teaching. Some of the specifics that I will discuss include classroom management, building relationships, communication, and what to do once you have a job. The first few years in teaching can be a challenge, and the goal of this clinic is to help preservice and novice music teachers be successful as teachers.
