MMED 713 Aspiring to Excel; Leadership For Music Educators

3 credits 45.0 hours
700 level graduate course

Aspiring to Excel will address the importance of leadership and excellence in the education of students through music. The intention of this course is to stress the ‘what to’s’ and the ‘how to’s’ of effective leadership. Scheduling, day to day organizational methods, accurate advocacy strategies, faculty cohesiveness, peer relationships, avoiding burnout, image building and departmental balance issues will be the focus of the course. Individual needs and issues of the participants will be analyzed along with the development of strategies to address them. A continuing commitment to excellence will be stressed in order for the music educator to begin focusing on what is right in a given situation, rather than what is wrong.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
