Great new pod!
Love this podcast! Carrie and Tanya have great conversations! Lots of great ideas to use in the classroom. They hit the ground running by staring with a fantastic format. The pod seems like what I'm guessing their classroom looks like: well planned out and FUN!
Impressive and Inspiring
I just told my student teacher who is starting with next week to start listening and take lots of notes! I couldn't imagine a better training tool while commuting. I appreciate how well everything is articulated and thoughtfully communicated but also accessible and fun to listen to. Tanya and Carrie have very lucky students AND listeners!
Professional Development on the Go
This podcast is off to a great start. I appreciate the dialogue about ideas and approaches for use with different songs or groups of students and find that the audio podcast is a terrific vehicle for Kodály ideas (the hosts sing folk songs, which in a way embodies the aural tradition Kodály championed). I enjoy reading music education blogs, networking at conferences, and going to workshops, but am extremely excited to have a way to listen in on experienced teachers' discussions about things I encounter in my own classroom and teaching position.
