I am Head of Music & Drama at a secondary school.
I find that music is one of the most important fields in education today and it carries the same weight as any “core” subject and deserves the same respect in regards to its validity. Music is something that benefits many aspects of our lives from physical to spiritual, one cannot argue that music plays an integral role in our personal development. It allows us to express our needs and desires through song as well as gives us an insight into some of the most talented people of our history.
The goal of music education is to allow a student to experience success within a musical environment.
I have been teaching for 13 years in secondary schools.
A teacher must be a professional, while at the same time keeping a sense of humor and an
appreciation of fun. A teacher must act as as model, but also serve as one member of a learning
team with his students. A teacher must encourage growth through support and tender care,
but also nudge a student forward through tough times. Through it all, a teacher must be fair,
honest, trustworthy, and dependable.
