Will I receive any training and professional development?
Yes. ETM provides ongoing training and professional development to ETM Music Teachers and to school-employed music teachers.
Before each school year, ETM’s Director of Programs and program staff host ETM Academy, an intensive clinic covering topics such as classroom management, lesson planning, assessment, integration, and other concepts and strategies that supply teachers with the tools needed for success.
Throughout the school year, we provide day-long and evening workshops in both small and large group settings to reinforce training and introduce other topics. For example, workshops have covered choral conducting techniques, body percussion, and incorporating the use of Orff instruments. ETM pays training stipends for all sessions.
We also provide ongoing mentoring and coaching throughout the year.
