Summer and the Start of a Series

Greeting to all, and a belated happy start to the school year!

The past several months found me with another year teaching beginning summer band, which was by far my summer's highlight. I had the rowdiest group of trombones I've ever had, but they did great and learned a lot. I'll tell more tales as time wears on.

For the time being, I want to announce a series of posts for people either looking at becoming music education majors or early on in their undergrad. Topics include:
  • Why the piano is important
  • What to expect (and not to expect) in your first couple years
  • How to stuff 30 hours into a 24-hour day (kind of)
  • Why instrumentalists should learn how to sing and vocalists should learn how to play
  • How to pass Music Theory I and why that's the hardest class you might take
'Til then,
-Greg

You've got a nice blog here, my friend. Music education can really be both rewarding and challenging. It requires a dose of right attitude, skill, knowledge and experiences as well as an ounce of discipline, patience and dedication. If you have the passion and the love for music, you will surely excel. No doubt. Have those music teaching tips you have in mind as your inspiration and motivation to succeed. Good luck and have fun.
