“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” – William Arthur Ward

From the classifications above, I really think I am a great teacher! I love to teach as much as I enjoy doing it – imparting my knowledge and my skills to young minds. To teach music is both my passion and my cup of tea. I tend to go beyond mere teaching my students music and how to play musical instruments; I see to it that I involve them in everything that we do in every music session – having them highly motivated and inspired at all times.

On a personal note, every time I inspire each of them and make a difference, I feel more motivated and inspired to teach music to these young learners. Whenever I am evaluated by my dear students, I always enjoy reading their feedback as I come to know and realize my weaknesses and my strengths.

Consistently, I would have lots of good and positive points and a very few points for improvement. Yet, I keep an open mind to accept that there shall always be rooms for improvement. Yes, at all times – music teachers shall never cease from educating their own minds and coming up with new, creative and innovative music teaching resources.

Below are some of my top three secrets on why and may be how I become one of the best and most inspired teachers who love to teach music at all times.

Use innovative strategies and make learning so much fun. Learn how animate things and make use of available innovations like integration of internet and other means of computer technology. I am so sure that like my students, they prefer and appreciate innovative music teaching strategies. These methods can certainly keep them away from boredom and school anxiety. Thus, these positively make them feel more motivated and inspired to attend your music class, participate in every activity and attentively cooperate in all classroom endeavors.

Create a more conducive learning environment where they can truly and successfully understand and love music. Make your classroom or music studio a good venue for camaraderie. Establish camaraderie between them and you as their music educator as well as among their classmates. Communicate with the students and relate to them as often as you could.

Reward them at all times – give them lots of incentives and recognitions that they deserve. Positive remarks and other ways of sending them your compliments and appreciations are indeed effective ways to make them feel involved, motivated and inspired. Have that positive attitude to magnify the good things that your dear students do and accomplish instead of focusing much on their weaknesses and limitations. They have boundless abilities that can actually surprise you each day.

Well, every teacher can truly be the greatest and the best teacher for his or her students. Yes, it is indeed possible when all it takes is a bunch of everything – time, effort, passion, dedication, commitment, and enough good music teachers’ resources. So, be a great teacher today, enjoy the fun, and be more inspired. Let’s spread the good news as it really pays a lot to teach music to happy and inspired students. Good luck!
