Podcasts have become popular, and it seems today that everyone and their dog has a podcast worth listening to. I often think about starting one of my own but am in awe of the shear amount of work it is to find good guests, topics, and to keep a steady schedule of recording. Regardless, I have been interviewed for three music education podcasts to date, and all of them are worth a listen, not just my episode, but the others in their roster too.
The Elementary Music Teacher Podcast with Jessica Peresta

The Music Ed Mentor Podcast with Elisa Janson Jones
The Music Ed Mentor Podcast Description
Simply graduating with a music education degree doesn’t make anyone 100% ready to jump into any situation in any music classroom. There’s a whole lot of learning that happens on the job. That’s why the Music Ed Mentor Podcast brings in experts from around the globe to help you continue your learning. They share practical experience on things like managing the finances of your program and how best to select repertoire. Perhaps even more importantly, they talk about “off-the podium” skills that can help you create a life you don’t need a vacation from.
While the podcast address a wide variety of topics, every episode includes practical and actionable tips to help music educators like you, both in and out of the classroom.
