    296: The crossroads in music education

    296: The crossroads in music education

    This is an audio blog - I picked up the mic and just started talking.
    I share what I'm seeing with music education and online business - how they intersect and have created a crossroads for each music teacher to define their own next step.
    Take a bit of time before the end of the year and decide what path you're going to be on for 3 - 6 - 12 months and stay the course.
    There is no one right way to teach music and you get to decide what that's going to look like for you. Surround yourself with the right teachers, guides, coaches and mentors - hire help to make your journey easier. Remember to commit!
    Oh and, connect with me okay?
