When planning for the “Music (ed) Matters” podcast, one of the big goals was to share teacher stories of dynamite educators out in the trenches doing great things. This is the first of that dream coming to life! These episodes are meant to inspire, motivate, and encourage you to keep doing the great things you’re doing while also taking a moment to celebrate the teacher guest and their incredible contributions to our profession and their students.

In this “Teacher Story,” Middle School Choir Director and 3rd-year teacher, Camille Lacey, shares how she found middle school, what it is like to build community, and how she is thriving after accepting a job and filling the shoes of a 30+ year veteran teacher. Ms Lacey’s stories will warm your heart, motivate you, and give you ideas! For those young teachers or pre-service teachers, this is an episode you’re going to love especially, as at the end, Ms. Lacey answers some questions from music education students about to student teach.

Do you know a teacher who should be featured in an upcoming “Teacher Story?” Jump over to EmilyBurch.org/contact and let us know!

These are some of my favorite episodes to curate for you! They always get me thinking, researching, and tuning back into what it is like to be on the “outside” of the music making process. Listen to these Q&A Dr is In episodes to smile, to learn, and to reconnect with the magic that brought you to music in the first place — plus this one features a clip on Dolly Parton, The Spice Girls, and so much more - what’s not to love smiley

As always, thanks to the fabulous students who submitted their questions for bonus points! It is an honor to be your professor.

Raising the Bar. Getting the most out of your singers by setting the bar high, giving them the right tools, and leading with empathy.

Dr. Adam Luebke was appointed Music Director of Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus in 2015. Since that time, the chorus has been hailed as “splendid,” “articulate,” “soaring,” and “virtuosic.” He and the chorus were awarded a 2021 GRAMMY for Best Choral Performance for their recording Richard Danielpour: The Passion of Yeshua with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor JoAnn Falletta. In this episode, Dr. Luebke shares how we can all “raise the bar” like he raised his amateur choir to attain a GRAMMY nomination and then the GRAMMY.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
