RT @JaworskiMusic: @rlinv As the research says, praise of effort (not talent) is the important part. #MusEdChat

RT @ColinTGraham: encouraging responsibility fr each section as a gp can be powerful, peer pressure etc., and leaders can emerge #MusEdChat

RT @pisanojm: if you have Ss leadership, the goal is not to have a “click” of elites, but a “cadre” of servants of the group. #MusEdChat

@rlinv Yes, this unsolicited input is often an indicator of who the leaders are! #MusEdChat

@DoremiGirl Yes! reminders…, but this sort of ldrship molds them into the great young people your HS director will love you 4! #MusEdChat

At the MS level, the leaders need to be much more closely mentored by the teacher to overcome immaturity issues. #MusEdChat

@thomasjwest Yes, it certainly happens - but I think more often a group that is enthusiastic will work hard and become successful #MusEdChat

@Zweibz7 I don’t think these things are mutually exclusive. High quality ensembles should be naturally enthusiastic. #MusEdChat

via TweetGrid in reply to Zweibz7

RT @pisanojm: You can assess leadership effectiveness by judging enthusiasim, excitment, as well as goal obtainment. #musedchat #MusEdChat

Great ? Often becomes so cause of their positive behavior RT @brandtschneider: is leadership the kid we like the best? #musedchat

via TweetGrid

@LindsayMorelli I’ve done both although I lean toward private. Time becomes an issue, usually though. #musedchat

via TweetGrid in reply to LindsayMorelli

Life is about winning and losing and growing in character through both. I think music teaches this well. #musedchat

Absolutely! Section leader isn’t 1st ch.RT @pisanojm: Sometimes the best players ARE NOT the best leaders in a group. #musedchat

I don’t live somewhere with the luxury of “musical” substitute teachers. My lesson plans always direct specific students to lead #musedchat

via TweetGrid

@LindsayMorelli student led ensembles are great thing. That’s when you know you’ve done your job! #musedchat

via TweetGrid in reply to LindsayMorelli

@Zweibz7 Elected position for “band president”, “social director” - things like that. Appointed for section leaders, etc. #musedchat

via TweetGrid in reply to Zweibz7

I do elected positions that are more “fun” and/or political in nature.Appointed positions for those requiring a certain skill set #musedchat

via TweetGrid

@rlinv do you run that at your school or send them away? #musedchat

via TweetGrid in reply to rlinv

I haven’t run into too many students who wish to lead, that don’t have leadership potential. Problem kids will avoid it. #musedchat

via TweetGrid

Student leaders take ownership of the ensemble and it’s success #musedchat

via TweetGrid

Aside from the benefits to & within the ensemble, student leadership is a huge benefit 2 the individual student’s personal growth #musedchat
