by Beth Philemon
10M ago
Today I am joined by my former co-worker and dear friend, Mr. Alexander Alberti. We cover a variety of different areas in this podcast but one that stuck out to me in particular was this idea of "breaking the cycle of expectations" in teaching music the way it has always been taught. We have so many resources at our disposal, we should take advantage of technology, community members, and our students' interests when we are teaching. Alex Alberti is the current Director of Instrumental Music at Longleaf School of the Arts in Raleigh, North Carolina. Alberti is an eighth-year music educator wit ..read more

The episode I didn't want to record but literally could not stop feeling the universe impressing upon my heart that I must. It's the ugly truth, inappropriate advances and relationships occur in all aspects of life. For me, it was a text message from a long admired and respected choir professor from my undergraduate university. My hope is that in sharing my story, other people know they are not alone if they have experienced anything even related to this. I encourage everyone to communicate with someone they trust if they have experienced any level of inappropriate misconduct.  Choir Bato ..read more

While you can't give your singers in the Spring of 2020 a final end of the year or semester concert as a culminating experience of the work they've done, I do believe you can provide a unique opportunity to reflect, showcase, and remember their year. Digital Portfolios, my friends. Yes, digital portfolios. Before you dismiss this idea - stay with me. A portfolio is a product that ultimately shows either your best work or how your work has progressed over time. This podcast is an example of a form of a digital portfolio. Listen to the progression of episodes and you'll (hopefully) see how I've ..read more
