'The Encourager' teacher and you celebrate all of your student's musical triumphs.
Well Hello "Encourager" teacher!
Just like the enthusiastic parents at the Wizarding World, you cheer on your student’s musical triumphs with clapping and cheering.
But being the optimistic teacher can be tough when things don't go as planned.
As a fellow practicing parent of three, a music teacher of 35-plus years, and now music school director, I created this quiz to help you understand your unique magic abilities as a teacher. I understand the challenges and joys of both teaching and the responsibilities you have to guide and support your student’s parents, after raising 3 very different children of my own. I get it, and we're in this together.
Why this knowledge is powerful:
Knowing your magical teaching style is a powerful thing because you can use this knowledge to level up your teaching. You can specifically choose goals and how you will accomplish them based on things that you will naturally be good at. That means you will be more successful and so will your students!
You've already shown your commitment to your student's musical education, by taking the time to do this quiz - so congratulations…and you're here because you're ready to learn what to do next.
As an "Encourager" teacher your next step is to become a master of praising your student’s efforts instead of their results and do what you already do naturally even better!
Here are the three things to think about:
First, focus on specific details in the process: Remember or even better write down in each lesson the smallest details that you have asked your student to do. Watch carefully to “catch them” being successful at their small tasks and ask them to watch, listen and feel for them at home as well.
Second, point out their perseverance: How they keep trying until they get it and stick to it until it feels easy.
Third, notice the habits they're developing. What are they doing easily now, without even thinking about it anymore, that last month or last year they found hard?
Think about these THREE things, and you’ve got this! And hey, thank you for being an “Encourager” teacher - the world NEEDS as many Encouragers as it can get!
The next step:
Now, ready to put it all together and take the next step? If you're wondering what's next and how to leverage this information, I have a special one-time workshop coming up – the "Level Up Your Music Practices in 2024” with Your Magical Style of Teaching. This FREE workshop is your chance to integrate your newfound knowledge and make 2024 a year of incredible growth and success.
Too often, we try to improve by doing something we read or see online or in our studios. Maybe something your teacher is asking you to do or you read about.
This is great to be inspired by others, but success comes from doing the right thing and not doing everything. When you make goals that resonate with your natural, innate style, then you will have success. As you've discovered in this quiz from Practicing pro, you know your magical parenting style, and it is unique and powerful. So now instead of focusing on what you have read or seen others do, we will instead use YOUR specific strengths as an “Encourager” to your advantage.
Free Workshop with Practicing pro:
Let's figure out the goals you can make in 2024 that are enhanced by your magical teaching style. This FREE workshop is designed specifically to help YOU capitalize on your strengths.
