Re: Sitting while teaching beginners
I normally try to move around the room some, but this year I've been keeping more distant from students, so, no, I'm not going to get any closer to a student than I absolutely need to this year. As a result, I have spent much more time at the front of the class, and sometimes *gasp* sitting on my very high stool that makes me about as tall as I am when standing anyway.
That being said, I have seen lots of highly regarded and successful teachers and conductors sit on a stool to conduct, so I just think do what works for you, but also be willing to try different approaches if it's not working.
