Inspirational and Practical
This podcast is a “must listen” every time I see a new episode pop up. I am always inspired after listening. I appreciate the balance between inspirational conversation and practical tips and ideas I can take into my classroom right away. I always learn something new!
Love this podcast and it’s thoughts on fostering the music room into a loving place!
So Many Great Resources!
I have been a huge fan of Aileen Miracle for many years. I student taught under someone who is a Kodály inspired teacher, but I was not able to start my levels right away. Mrs. Miracle’s TPT store and blog really saved me my first years of teaching! This podcast is a continuation of all the wonderful things she offers music educators. She has fantastic guests, shares great classroom ideas, and offers many ideas related to productivity and life outside of the music room as well (many of which I have tried). I really can’t recommend this podcast and all of her materials enough!
