    06 | Meaningful Music Education for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder

    Thank you for listening to this episode of That Music Podcast. This week I’m sharing a little bit of the research on music education for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder that I came across while pursuing my Masters of Music Education at Capital University.

    Across the United States, there are music educators that are teaching students with varying levels of exceptional needs. One of the subsets within this student population are students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

    Just as ASD itself lies upon a spectrum, so too does the need for accommodations and supports for students with ASD to have successful musical experiences.

    04 | Trauma Sensitivity in the Music Classroom

    04 | Trauma Sensitivity in the Music Classroom

    Thank you for listening to this episode of That Music Podcast. This week I’m talking about something that is near and dear to my heart as a teacher in a Title I school: trauma sensitivity.

    Like most music teachers out there, I have many students that walk through my door that have experienced more trauma than any child should ever have to experience. These Adverse Childhood Experiences alter the way our students are able to learn, both on physical and emotional levels. On this episode of That Music Podcast, I share a few ways to help better serve these students in order to make sure they can be successful.

    03 | Staying Sane as a Traveling Teacher

    Thank you for listening to this episode of That Music Podcast. This week I shared my favorite ways to keep my sanity as a traveling music teacher.

    For better or for worse, being a traveling teacher is a reality for a large percentage of music teachers, especially those at the elementary level. While I can vouch that there are definitely advantages and disadvantages of sharing your time between multiple schools, I can also vouch that you need to set some specific procedures for yourself so that you don’t go crazy.

    02 | What I Wish I Knew Before Student Teaching Music

    02 | What I Wish I Knew Before Student Teaching Music

    Thank you for listening to this episode of That Music Podcast. Today I shared my experience student teaching music, and what I wish I would have known before stepping foot into the classroom.

    I spent the weeks leading up to student teaching searching the internet for tips and tricks about student teaching music. I was able to find some helpful information about being a student teaching in general, but I felt like there was always something missing. After all, student teaching for music looks completely different than student teaching in the general classroom.

    01 | Setting Goals for Music Teachers

    Thank you for listening to this episode of That Music Podcast. In this episode, I talk about goal setting for music teachers.

    I set goals for myself at the beginning of the school year. I think it’s a great way to frame my year and work towards bettering myself as a musician and educator. Now that we’re in a brand new decade, I decided to sit down with a cup of coffee and reflect on these goals. Whether you’ve already set goals or are just thinking about some, this episode is for you!
