You allow your students to engage in behavior that is not in their best interest, and most of the time, you’re just tired of them not caring about what you want them to do.
Maybe you get a few glimmers of greatness here and there, but overall you’re not pleased with how your ensembles and classes sound.
You want diversity, equity, and inclusion to be at the core of what you do. Excellent. But the populations in your music program do not match the rest of your school or community. You know what you want to see in your programs, but have no idea where to start.
Boundaries aren’t a bad thing! But you keep a real distance. You might not consider yourself “cold” but you don’t incorporate social or emotional skills into your curriculum.
Your students know you are passionate about music, but they aren’t sure you care about them as people.
Students are totally disengaged and disinterested in your class. They say things like “I don’t care!” and “Why are we learning this anyway?”
Students aren’t performing at the level you’d like, and students/families aren’t on board with your artistic vision- to say the least!
You can upgrade your program in three simple steps:
SET THE STAGE: Uncover the core values amongst your students, staff, and community with the power of data
ENVISION THE OUTCOMES: Create a values based mission and ultimate outcomes for your entire program that are grounded in equity and connection
CREATE AN INDIVIDUALIZED PLAN: Promote buy-in and prevent burn-out with personalized growth and implementation plans for each teacher
