Your Professional Development

Teachers: be sure that in addition to the days of “professional development” you participate in through your school, you also engage in your own professional development. Activities that are certain to help you on your journey.

Ask: What will help me develop your professional skills?

Today’s personal PD assignment from me is to listen to some music that makes you say “wow.” Raise the bar for what you think of as possible musically.

And then bring that new bar into the classroom or rehearsal room with you.

How about this? It’s Roomful of Teeth singing live the Passacaglia from Caroline Shaw’s Partita, winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Music.
