302: 3 Steps to Teaching an Integrated Music Lesson

In today’s episode, we’re going to unpack the 3-step process on how to teach an integrated music lesson in your studio. Integrated music teaching is based on expanding and deepening your students’ connection to repertoire, so this 3-step process is all based around the repertoire that the student is already learning. Have a listen as we discuss these processes from analysing the repertoire for musical elements, to finding musical connections, and planning activities that integrate different elements.
