Live with Skye: Music Clinics
Have you ever seen this in your students?
You give them specific musical advice for weeks, months, or even years... but they don't actually do anything with it until a guest teacher or adjudicator (or even a YouTuber!) tells them the exact same thing?
I have. It's funny to me now... but it used to frustrate me to pieces!
That's one of the biggest reasons I spend my time leading Live Music Clinics in the US, Canada, and Australia.
Not only do a bring fresh eyes and a boost of inspiration to your music ensembles, but I help your students begin to appreciate your musical genius, too, so you can have more efficient rehearsals after I leave. I almost always end up saying (with a wink), "I'll bet you've never heard that before, right?"
I quickly build a rapport with kids so I can hold them accountable to their highest potential without tears or hurt feelings as we dive into your routines, learning strategies, behavior expectations, and musical goals.
It's funny how students do listen to strangers more than their main teacher – that's why I always hire guest teachers to work with my own groups. Always, always, always.
I'd love to bring my fresh eyes and a boost of inspiration to your music ensembles!

Teachers Are Saying...
"Within minutes of Skye walking into my classroom, the entire vibe of the class had changed.
My students and I have kept that vibe strong for 2 months on our own now! Thanks Skye!"
Middle School Band
"University didn't teach me how to inspire kids to intrinsically want to behave and perform at 100%.
Somehow, Skye turned my most challenging class into my favorite class of the week!"
Elementary Music Enrichment
“I could feel my stress melting away... [Skye] didn't tell me to do it her way, she just helped me get back in touch with myself and consider my students' interests so my students and I could have more fun. So glad to be out of the box!
