In today’s episode we’re tackling an important topic: How to create lasting fulfillment, no matter what in music teaching.
Because music teaching can be a mixed bag, right? Our emotions can range from utter exhilaration to total exhaustion, sometimes in minutes which can ultimately lead to sadness about what we do as teachers.
Sometimes it only takes one student to tell us that music isn’t important to them to completely throw ourselves off track and the effects of a few can be devastating to a career.
So, in today’s episode of music teachers Q&A, we’re covering some initial thoughts and steps to form a framework and mindset to create lasting fulfilment and meaning in life as a music teacher or working within education.
This is a summary of some of the thoughts I share based on my own personal learning and coaching I’ve received from some amazing mentors.
