Second week of the Governors School for the Arts (GSFTA) Music festival is now in the books. Having fine tuned the teachings of oboe and oboe reed making, I am feeling exhausted but motivated to enter the third week! The Career Development and Entrepreneurship class has become more streamlined. As we enter the third and final week of the GSFTA, I am finding the classes easier more enjoyable! Every student has commented on how much they have learned!
Tying in home life with the 5-7 hour days of teaching is a grueling task! I now feel I have a better handle on teaching virtually, and while the fall teaching style is still unpredictable, I know we will all persevere.
Next up with the GSFTA, is a virtual ensemble. Again, while uncharted territory, I will figure this out later this weekend and am sure the recording will be great….. stay tuned!
