What All Teachers Should Learn from Jazz Band

A professor of neuroscience at Texas A&M University shares what all teachers should learn from jazz-band teachers in his article for Psychology Today.

Unlike traditional education, where the goal is to meet minimum standards on state-mandated tests, jazz band directors make very clear their high expectations that everybody in each band class should become as proficient as they can. The whole point of their teaching is mastery and excellence.
