Chaotic Harmony Podcast Episode 15: Classroom Management

Classroom management looks different for a music teacher with hundreds of students than it does for a general ed teacher with 20-30. How do you create a warm, safe, well managed music classroom when you process hundreds of students through the classroom every single week? Using a combination of different classroom management systems, keeping the focus on teacher/student relationship as much as possible, using humor when appropriate, managing our own stress, and drilling routines have lead to more organized environments for us. We hope you can take something valuable for your own classroom.Spiccato:“We are the Dinosaurs” by Laure BerlinerDinovemberRound of the Week: “The Orchestra Quibledet”For more classroom management tips and to watch our live presentation in San Diego, CA, check out https://www.chaoticharmonyclassroom.com/resourcesMAGA Presentation video: https://youtu.be/enBUuodP-RAFollow us on Twitter!Chaotic Harmony — @CHClassroomCrystal Pridmore — @FinneyVAPA & @mrsPridmoreJonathan Seligman — @mrSeligmanMarc Keehmer — @mrKeehmerZoe Kumagai — @msKumagaiWebsite: https://www.chaoticharmonyclassroom.comInstagram: @chaoticharmonyclassroomFacebook: @chaoticharmonyclassroomCrystal Pridmore is a co-host of Chaotic Harmony Classroom.
