Circles of Influence: What Great Teachers Learned from Other Great Teachers
Perspectives on teaching music. Weekly conversations with successful and influential band, choral, orchestra and general music teachers will serve as the foundation of this class. Students will be required to listen to these interviews weekly and be prepared to discuss them during Zoom classes and in short, concise written assignments. Zoom classes will be scheduled once class members submit their availability.
