Summary

From the best-selling author of I Love My Job But It’s Killing Me a lesson plan for the successful music educator in today’s new world.
 
It’s always been challenging to keep students focused in a world where distractions and other factors interfere with their ability to learn, and that’s even more true as we find ourselves in unprecedented and ever-changing educational situations now.  It’s becoming more difficult to get students to connect and engage with our riveting lessons as the list of things that distract them is ever-growing, from social media and family issues to fear of the unknown and heightened anxieties, just to name a few.
 
As music teachers, we teach students how to develop all kinds of skills, from mental to physical, in order for them to be well-rounded musicians. We show them how to properly form an embouchure, the correct fingerings to use, how to read music, what proper posture looks like, how to be artistic and expressive, and so much more.
 
And we always tell them to “pay attention” and “focus.” But do we ever teach them how to pay attention and focus?
 
The secret to getting students engaged, focused, and curious so you can teach them all the cool stuff about music is teaching them how to actually build those skills until they become habits. Once you’ve taught them how to learn, then everything else becomes a million times easier for you and for them.
 
In this book, you will discover:
 
• How to “tune your students’ brains and bodies in just a few minutes at the             beginning of each class so they are able to receive, retain, and reimagine what     you teach them
 
• The secret to implementing a plan for a successful classroom culture where           students feel emotionally safe, regardless of whether you are in-person or             online
 
• Proven techniques for fast-tracking the learning process that work for you and      for students through implementation of my SNaP Strategies
 
• How my signature mPower Method can help you find the healthy balance you         need to be emotionally, mentally, and physically fit enough to have the stamina     to do this important work
 
As Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser said about this book and the process I teach, “I suggest that reading Love the Job, Lose the Stress offers-up a powerful prescription availing us to a personal/professional avenue arriving at one’s desired contentment and fulfillment.”
 
Once you adopt a way to literally tune your students’ brains and bodies to prepare them for music class, you’ll find you’re able to teach “in flow” and be the teacher who helps kids become the best version of themselves through the magic of music education…without burning out in the process.

    Modernism is usually thought of as a shock wave of innovations hitting art, architecture, music, cinema and literature - the work of Picasso, Joyce, Schoenberg, movements like Futurism and Dada, the architecture of Le Corbusier, T.S. Eliot's The Wasteland and the avant-garde theatre of Bertolt Brecht or Samuel Beckett. But what really defines modernism? Why did it begin and how long did it last? Is Modernism over now? Chris Rodriguez and Chris Garratt's brilliant graphic guide is a brilliant exploration of the last century's most thrilling artistic work - and what it's really all about.

    Pioneer of geometric abstract art and one of the most important members of the Russian Avant-garde, Malevitch experimented with various modernist styles. In reaction to the influence of Cubism and Futurism on artists in Russia, Malevitch in his art reduced the world of nature to basic elements and colours, such as in his Red Square (1915). He introduced his abstract, non-objective geometric patterns in a style and artistic movement he called Suprematism. One of the important names of the twentieth century, he however turned back to Primitivism once Russia’s communist leaders forced him to do so.

Throughout his life he sought the answers to such fundamental questions as: "What is great acting?" and "How can you find inspiration in every performance?" Stanislavski remains the most important influence on actor training today, and yet many of his ideas are little known, or even misunderstood.Stanislavski For Beginners charts the development of the Stanislavski system. It includes a clear exposition of the key elements of the system and explores his Method of Physical Actions, which he worked on in the years before his death, and which he called “the result of my whole life’s work.”
