The Running Music Mom ,

Such a great resource for music teachers!

As a veteran teacher who is relatively new to First Steps in Music, Missy’s podcast has been an incredible resource! She shares insights, tips for teaching, hosts amazing guests, and does it all with some humor mixed in. If you’re looking to find out more about being a great music educator and want to learn more about the Feierabend approach, look no further.

Making the connections to FS

This podcast is a great clarifier! Missy delves into the many aspects of FS while also being VERY human. This is what professional development in music education should sound like! :-)
