Being an elementary music teacher isn't just singing and playing games all day.

(But you don't need me to tell you that.)

You're getting a lot of things right, but you know there's got to be something that would help you feel more fulfilled in your teaching.

What you really want is to...

Spend less time reinventing the wheel each time you plan a lesson so you can focus on what really matters: making music with kids.

Get organized so you actually have the time to be a music teacher and have a personal life (I promise it's possible).

Ensure that all students have the opportunity to be successful in your classroom.

Feel more confident and fulfilled in your career so you don't feel like you're pulling your hair out.

Create a positive impact in the lives of your students so they become life-long supporters of the arts.

You can make this school year your best one yet.

The best part? I've got something to help:

 

THE ELEMENTARY MUSIC SUMMIT

 

16 experts over three days will teach you the strategies you can use to empower yourself to spend time more productively while ensuring that all of your students can be successful in the music classroom.

MAYBE YOU'RE...

Tired of feeling like all you do is lesson plan.

Ready to try something new to serve your students in a more meaningful way.

Ready to add some new tools to your elementary music teacher toolbox.

Whatever it is for you, it's time to increase your impact in the elementary music classroom.

(Without adding more to your already too-full plate)

MEET YOUR HOST

Bryson Tarbet, M.M. is a PreK-6th grade general music teacher just outside of Columbus, Ohio. He received his Bachelor’s of Music in Music Education from Ohio Wesleyan University and a Masters of Music in Music Education degree with a Kodály emphasis from Capital University.

During his first year of teaching Bryson noticed just how large of a gap there is between what is taught in undergrad and the reality of teaching elementary music. Bryson founded That Music Teacher, LLC to help music teachers find their footing in the elementary music classroom, even if they didn’t learn everything they needed in undergrad.

The Details

When

The Elementary Music Summit will run from August 5th through August 7th with a variety of presentations to choose from each day.

Where

I don't know about you, but my favorite types of PD are those that can be done anywhere. With that being said, you can tune into the summit from anywhere with internet access. (Did somebody say PD poolside?)

Presentations

Presentations will be between 30-60 minutes in length. Whether you join us live or catch the replay, each speaker will share actionable information that will help you create a lasting impact on the lives of the students in your classroom.

PARTY IT UP

You'll also have access to a private Facebook group for the summit where we'll be partying it up before the summit starts and cheering each other on once it kicks off.

Prizes

As an attendee, you'll have the chance to win prizes based on engagement, BINGO, and giveaways. In fact, entries are being awarded right now in the Facebook group. Come on in and join the fun!

The All-access pass

After registering, you can also upgrade to gain access to the All-Access Pass. That means you'll get 90 days to access the presentations and so many other amazing resources to help you in the classroom. You won't want to miss it!

Why The Elementary Music Summit?

 

It’s easy to feel forgotten about as an elementary music teacher. The professional development our schools provide us are rarely helpful in our day-to-day lives in the classrooms.

Even at music-specific conferences the elementary teachers often get the short end of the stick. That’s why the Elementary Music Summit is special.

The Elementary Music Summit puts content-specific professional development at your fingertips!
