Welcome back to another edition of Music Teachers’ Q and A – where Music Teachers all over the world help each other with ideas and resources for music Education.

Today’s question comes from Liz, and she writes:

“I was just wondering if you would know of some amazing role model musicians and performers who my upper primary kids or even junior high students would be able to relate to. I find that showing a video of an exceptional performer (with a great attitude of course!)  is a great way get students to continue to rise to a higher standard and it helps  them to believe in themselves as well. Anyway I’m always on the look out for new videos to show them and would appreciate some input from you and the network of teachers out there”

Anyway, Here are my thoughts on video:

Please feel free to share your inspirational YouTube videos and performers in the comments section below this video. We’d all love to see what is working for you when you share it with students.

Don’t forget.. in a world first I’m actually going to be interviewing Chris Hadfield in a few weeks time, in the Virtual Music Education Conference. What would you ask him if you had the chance? Well… actually you do have the chance! Head on over to the conference website, and if you register now you can ask a question of Chris before its too late!
