Music Ed Mentor Podcast #047: Benefiting from Critique

Curated from SmartMusic’s Music Educators Blog – by Elisa Janson Jones –

Do you know the feeling of having royally messed up and been called out on it? Join us for insights on how to recover from situations like this – and for ways to avoid feeling that way from the start.

This week my guest is David Beil, expert band director and host of the “Beyond the Clef” podcast. We share some of our personal critique stories and talk about why we take groups to festival (and other performances) in the first place. We also discuss how we deal with criticism from judges, fellow directors, students, parents, and administrators.
