DEVELOPING A PHILOSOPHY FOR SUCCESS
PHILOSOPHY - your values and beliefs
It is virtually impossible to be successful in the field of education without having formulated a personal teaching philosophy. This philosophy, based on a lifetime of personal experiences and observations, should serve as the foundation for your ability to achieve success. It should be noted that not every teacher selects music as their subject matter. What all teachers do share however, is the wonderful opportunity to include "lessons of life" as part of their daily classes. Therefore, what you value as being important, and what you believe in, should certainly be a reflection of your approach to teaching both music and the commonly accepted ideals of citizenship.
