On today’s episode of The Anacrusic Podcast, I’m talking about five times we need to give ourselves grace as music teachers. And trust me, there are WAY more than five.

Music teachers are perfectionists. Take a moment and let that sink in, because odds are it is 100% the truth. (Or, you know, at least 80%). I saw this meme on Facebook the other day that said something about rewriting something on a new piece of paper because the first time wasn’t neat enough… this is literally my life.

But over the last couple of years, with the age of reading lots and lots of personal development books and, honestly, becoming a mother, I’ve learned to let this perfectionism thing go, at least as much as my Type A brain will let me. Because the truth is, perfectionism isn’t real. And striving for it will only burn us out faster and faster as teachers who strive for awesomeness and care so much about what we do.
