A Summer of Opportunity: What Do Successful Music Educators Do in the off Season? Here Are Some Stories and Suggestions from Teachers Who Keep Working All Year Long
Poliniak, Susan
Teaching Music, v16 n6 p32 Apr 2009
For most students, summer means "break." It's a chance to put down the books, rest and recharge, attend camp as a participant or a counselor, earn some extra spending money with a summer job, perhaps travel with the family--in general, get away from all things academic. For teachers, the summer can stand for the same thing: vacation, in one form or another, from their school-year duties. But those warm and sunny months away from the classroom can also provide a valuable opportunity to explore new musical territory, further careers, or participate in cultural enrichment that will inform their work once classes are again in session. Teaching music is a passion, and passions don't tend to wane with the changing of seasons. In this article, the author presents some stories and suggestions from teachers who keep working all year long.
