Work Your Plan
Saturday, February 25th 2023
Tired of flying by the seat of your pants? Stressed out wondering what you will teach on Monday morning? Questioning where great songs and activities learned in various workshops fit into your weekly lesson plans? This workshop is for you! Together, we will experience lots of hands-on music making and then do a deep-dive into curriculum and design, learning how to prioritize various learning targets and plan sequentially with the year in mind.
