In this webinar, we will focus on best practices of music educators in the classroom and the rehearsal hall. With research-based evidence, we will share ideas about your identity as a music leader. How do you approach your students? What skills are the most important and how are our students best served by the teacher? We will cover methods of effective curricular development and noteworthy ideas for successful instructional delivery with attention to comprehensive musical skills and nurturing creativity.
