|Comment: Re: Classroom Management: Dicipline|
September 11, 2014
I'm retired but taught music on all levels during my 37 years in the classroom. There are no set techniques that work for everyone. A lot has to do with the teacher's personality.

Daniel Pinkham's Three Lenten Poems. It's for SATB choir, Handbells, and organ. You do not need to do all three.
