Donna Schwartz, part 1

donna schwartzDonna Schwartz of Music Teachers’ Resource Guide  joined me for a great, passionate conversation about the importance of music education. In this episode, we cover:

  • How Donna got into music education
  • Why Donna got out of music education, and how her side trip helped her
  • Why Donna left New York for California
  • Why Donna will never stop educating herself
  • How students learn music, and why and how they should learn it differently
  • How learning music is like learning a foreign language

Be sure to listen to the second part of our conversation here!

Please forgive the ambient landscaping noise—we worked around it the best we could! Stay tuned next week for more of our conversation.
