Kick-off 2021 with this episode where host Dr. Emily Williams Burch and guest Emily Crowe as they explore new adventures, new ideas, and ideas for investing in yourself and your singers from a slightly different angle. This episode answers the questions: What can we learn from administrative tasks that help us become even better teachers? How can we apply different mentalities and approaches to the classroom? Why should we create a snowball and not continually come in like a snowstorm? When can we step back, what can we read, and how do we sincerely learn to trust....our singers, ourselves, and the process?

With the end of the year upon us, this episode is the perfect way to reflect and ultimately “spark joy” before you plan and embark on a new year. In this motivational and insightful episode, educator, director, and yoga-teacher composer Melissa Trevino Keylock, highlights a series of positives we can reflect on at year end. From new educational opportunities, to leadership development, and reflection, this episode shines a bright light on the many potential positives that have come from the gift of time and slowing down. Ultimately, we hope this episode helps inspire and motivate you to dig into the year ahead and whatever that may mean for you. Let’s create (and find) the positive, together!

These tips explore the business side of creating an independent choir or building your school, church, or community choir through the experiences of Mrs. Delauney and Dr. Burch - both founders of independent community choirs in the past five years. Mrs. Delauney offers valuable insight into how to get started, what it will take, and how business practices can help you start something new or take your current choir to the next level.

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!
