About this cool website
I think my new website is so much fun! I owe it all to my friend, neighbor, and mother of two of my students, Kim Lambert.
Kim has so many creative ideas and knows how to put together a website that’s attractive, engaging, and represents my work and philosophies.
If you’d like Kim to make you look good on a website or in print, please contact her email@example.com and see the miracles she can do for you too!
What is a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music?
A NCTM is a member of the Music Teachers National Association. The following is from the MTNA Web site:
The mission of Music Teachers National Association is to advance the value of music study and music making to society and to support the professionalism of music teachers. The Professional Certification Program exists to improve the level of professionalism within the field of applied music teaching and helps the public readily identify competent music teachers in their communities. It signifies commitment to continued excellence in professional practice. In addition, it increases visibility, builds credibility, provides a goal for personal professional achievement and validates expertise for the individual and to those outside the field.
The program is based upon a set of five standards defining what a competent music teacher should know and be able to do:
Professional Teaching Practices
Professional Business Management
Professionalism and Partnerships
Standard V: Professional and Personal Renewal
To me, being a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music means that I have a commitment to teaching and learning and strive to help other music teachers attain high standards for themselves and their students and the respect our profession deserves.
