“If you are there for the music, you’re in the wrong profession. It has to be student centered, or you will burn out.” In this episode Elise and I explore various ways for teachers, in music and otherwise, to avoid feeling like the job takes more than it gives. If you need a pick me up in time for school to start, this is the episode for you!
