Just Ask Jennifer! Live #2

  Last week I went live and answered the following questions on Just Ask Jennifer! Question #1– Lesson Planning: How do you approach this? So I’m always reading about how teachers approach their lesson planning. It seems that many teachers keep track and/or plan for each student individually. As if they create an exact plan (during their non-teaching time) for each student’s next lesson. Is this true? Should I be doing this? I’ll be honest… I never have a “lesson plan.” I feel like it’s not possible to plan in advance because you never know how well a student is […]

Just Ask Jennifer went LIVE!

Yesterday Just Ask Jennifer! went live via Facebook Live! Just Ask Jennifer is a new advice column catered towards independent music teachers.
