We’d like to share a few of our favorite music education websites, podcasts and Facebook groups. As we move into the summer, you might have more time to read and listen to content that will help you become a better teacher. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Facebook Groups (Great discussions going on in these groups!)
Beginning Band Engagement Group – This chat room is for band directors who are wanting to learn and share ideas for quality, meaningful and fun teaching activities for beginning band.
Middle School Band Director Group – Middle school band talk
Program Notes Podcast – Discussing topics relevant to aspiring and new band directors
The Music Educator’s Blog – In-depth articles on all topics of music education
Boonshaft’s Blog – Short & sweet snippets to educate & inspire directors
SmartMusic & KHS America are business partners with BandDirectorsTalkShop.com. As we’ve worked with these companies and looked through their educational websites, we’ve been so impressed that we wanted to share them with you.
