Exclamation As I read this segment, I agree with the writer that music educators have the great responsibility in shaping students' musical experiences.
Razz With the current rapid musical growth in the classroom, teachers are required to be innovative in their approach. Even though teachers have limitations in concepts of musicianship and teaching ideas, they are expected to go out of their way to create and provide a 'more comprehensive avenues for students' musical participation.' This is because of the need to change and to make musical experiences more relevant and meaningful for students in today's music curriculum.
Wink To make changes more effective, I believe that teachers need support, especially from school leaders and partners in music education. Music educators can then help transform 'students' lives through music'.

flower I agree with you and I think this is something that Ms Ho is referring to also today when she talked about "innovation" as one of the greatest driver for education. We should dig in and consider this pt earnestly.

flower That's a very tall order, what can u do as a school leader in this time and age with all the competing priority? Nb Science/Maths/Language etc. education can also transform student's lives...
