Instrumentalist seeking help!
Date: March 5, 2014
I am an orchestra teacher and there is a possibility that i will be responsible for rehearsing 6th and 7th grade choir as well next year.
Any advice on where to start? Required reading? Suggested rep list? Where should I be investing the most energy in the beginning?(My personal vocal ability? Pedagogy research? Piano/accompanying, solfeggio?) Since I do have a year to prepare what classes should I take ASAP(pedagogy, diction, literature surveys) I do plan to seek the full license.(I can file an expectation for up to two years while seeking certification.) I am also interested in seeking the license concurrently with a masters degree. Does anyone have any recommendations for schools that are able to accommodate a fulltime teacher? Summer options would be great but many take me out of state so I would would have to work out transfer credits to a local university to get a WI license.
Any help or advice would be geratly appreciated
