In this episode, we're going to talk about how to choose music resources to teach when there's so much out there!  It can get so overwhelming with so much available and not knowing what to pick!  I'm going to break down a step by step strategy for you to be able to choose resources and not get so overwhelmed while doing so.

Music teaching resources

My desire with this music education podcast is to talk about all things music education in a humorous way. I am passionate about providing you with many ideas that you can use in your classroom, because I want you to be able to focus on being the amazing music teacher you are.

Every teacher chose to teach because they have a serious passion for fostering a love of learning in the lives of their students day in and day out.  But, here’s the thing.  We had goals, dreams, and talents way before we became teachers.  So when I hear the phrase “those who can’t do, teach”, I want to rephrase it to say, “we teach because we do.”  What I mean is, we teach because we’re talented at a certain instrument or skill and can’t help but share it with our students.
