Re: Nervous on podium
Are you nervous about your music ed chops being up to the task, or is it concern that you can control the behaviour of the students.
If it is the latter, you may need help from the HD. You must establish ways to be in control and have the authority to manage any situation with her/his support.
Iím teaching a high school SNV band. My first year to do it. Iíve been putting a lot of time and preparation into it but find myself getting pretty nervous a couple of hours before my rehearsal. Iíve actually been waking up a little before my alarm in the morning and my mind begins to race thinking about the rehearsal which is first period. Anyone ever experienced this? Basically how can I calm the heck down so Iím more relaxed when rehearsing the band?
