Today on TAP, I’m sharing Part I of The Ultimate Back to School Checklist for Music Teachers. Now, this isn’t all about how to get your bulletin boards ready or what songs to do on the first day, but it is all about setting up systems to make your classroom successful in the new year. I’m chatting how to set up some rules & procedures, as well as your opening & closing sequences for your lessons.
