I loved band for the community and I strive to create that in my band, but it truly is about the music. #musedchat

I think that however it happens, when the music takes on value for the Ss personally, they’ll stick w/ it. That’s the best carrot #musedchat

I’m back… #musedchat spurred some RL conversation with my students here. :)

I have 2 students right here: they say because “they love it and it’s a really good group of people” #musedchat

RT @LindsayMorelli: previous topic, I think building a community in your class/ensemble creates belonging and continuity. - Yes! #musedchat

Students are motivated by the feeling that creating excellence gives them. #musedchat
