In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Danny Rocks, former VP of Sales and Education at Alfred Publishing, gives advice to those entering the field of education. He advises interested individuals to get to know people in your school, learn how the system works, belong to professional organizations, and know the people in your field. Danny believes that forming these relationships will provide a bigger picture of what’s going on in your field and in your school system. Also, these interactions will allow you to form strong connections with your colleagues and remove any sense of isolation and helplessness that may discourage your teaching career.
