Overview

“By better managing the non-musical demands of your position, you free up more of your time, and mind, to address the real reason you chose the profession of music education: to help students experience the joys and challenge of making music. Organization and administration alone cannot make an ensemble sound good, but a lack of them can keep it from doing so.” – David Gregory

The course is designed to equip music educators with the tools, skills and strategies to successfully manage the job’s many non-musical responsibilities, which can consume up to 50% of the position. Topics include effective communication practices, data management and analysis, budget development and management, scheduling and staffing, evaluation and assessment of students and staff, change, building positive relationships, recruiting and retention of students and staff, and arts education advocacy. One outcome of this course will be an annual plan that organizes curriculum, events, professional development and advocacy activities.
