It’s normal to feel those times that you just don’t have the passion and the drive to pour yourself into it all the way you know that you and your students deserve and the way that really lights you up. And that’s the time to really hone your teacher musicianship more than any other.
On the last episode of The Anacrusic Podcast, I talked all about the importance of seeing yourself as a teacher musician instead of just a music teacher. This is such an important distinction, because it puts the emphasis of the label we use for ourselves on our intention.
It’s my musicianship that makes me an amazing teacher for my students. It’s my musicianship that brought me to my teaching practice, and it’s my musicianship identity that I put before everything (you know, other than wife and mother) about how I define myself in my professional life.
So today, on another Anacrusic in Action episode, I’m sharing some actionable ideas for how to truly unleash your own teacher musicianship.
Here’s what I’m sharing in today’s episode…
(1) How to sink into truly caring, even when you just aren’t feeling it
(2) What we GET to do each and every day
(3) Why it’s so important to keep creating as a teacher musician
