Topic: The “flipped” lesson: how to channel your teaching energy while delivering more content to your students, online or in person.

Whether we are still teaching online or have started to return to in-person lessons, many teachers are feeling a sense of fatigue. How can we stay energetic and motivating for our students without draining ourselves to the point of burnout? Chris Howes has traveled extensively to bring his time-tested ideas to classroom and independent studio music teachers. There will be time at the end for questions and further discussion
