The First Day of School is filled with a variety of emotions: excitement, anxiety, and nostalgia. That first day is important! It’s both an opportunity to pick up where you left off and, if you didn’t love the previous year, it’s a chance to try again.
You can recommit to your homework, meet new people, join new clubs, and get a fresh haircut all in an attempt to redefine who you are to the world around you. That first day of school serves as a convenient marker that helps us distinguish between who we were and who we will be.
So, what does this have to do with Leading Notes?
Well, Leading Notes is heading back to school, too!
While we are very proud of the work we’ve done in the past, this is the perfect opportunity for our little music education blog to try on some new clothes and present a new face to the world. Not only will we be publishing year-round, but we’re also working on a new site layout and editorial approach that will make it easier for you to take what you read here and apply it to your classroom. We also hope to keep you updated on music education news and trends as they happen.
While some things are changing, rest assured that you will still find high-quality music education content at Leading Notes. Because we love playing and teaching music, our personal mission is to create a music education blog where good teachers and good ideas get shared with the world.
As always, we are looking for smart and creative people who want want to work with us on creating a high-quality music education blog. In particular, if you feel comfortable with vocal and elementary music topics, we’d love to hear from you!
If you have any desire to get involved – even the tiniest inkling - let’s start talking.
We’ll see you soon…
