Description

The podcast is generously sponsored by the FAME organization and centers around the philosophy, programs, and resources of Dr. John Feierabend. You will hear some of the best practitioners and thinkers in music education, including our FAME Endorsed Teacher Trainers and Dr. Feierabend himself. You will learn about First Steps in Music and Conversational Solfege, Dr. Feierabend’s two most popular classroom programs, as well as how these programs and Dr. Feierabend’s philosophy and resources are used in every arena of music education. You’ll encounter discussions about the “real life” of a music teacher, both the challenges and successes. Additionally, you FAME Members will get a “deeper dive” into what was discussed on a few of our shows each season! My name is Missy Strong, the host and Executive Producer of the podcast. I am an elementary general/choral music teacher originally from Florida and now live in southern New Jersey. I am a FAME Endorsed Teacher Trainer in First Steps in Music and Conversational Solfege. I love talking about teaching music, pedagogy, students, what it’s really like to be a music teacher.
