3 Podcast Episodes You Might Actually Need

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.

First Up:

The Elementary Music Teacher Podcast with Jessica Peresta

The Elementary Music Teacher Podcast: Music Education

Are you an elementary music teacher? Maybe you’re worn out, overwhelmed, or feel like it gets harder each year.

In this podcast, I’ll share helpful tips and strategies, work-home life balance tips, and mindset blocks, while helping give you the motivation you need to gain momentum in your teaching so you can continue being the music teacher rock star you already are.

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.

Here is my episode:

Episode 17: How to Start a Rock Band

Hope these get you thinking and I hope you check out some of their other awesome episodes. See you next time.

Happy Musicking!
