Music Ed Mentor Podcast #61: Implementing SEL

Music Ed Mentor copyright

Today I’ve brought on one of the world’s foremost experts in a truly relevant topic in music education today: Social Emotional Learning, or SEL. Dr. Scott Edgar presents internationally on music education and social emotional learning and literally wrote the book AND the workbook “Music Education and Social Learning”.

I’m a complete novice when it comes to “SEL,” and you know I like to be in the loop when it comes to the hottest concepts to implement in your classroom. It’s hard to only spend an hour delving into not only what SEL is, but how it looks in the classroom, how to implement it, why it’s important, and why every single music educator in the country needs to be doing some of it right now – but that’s why we have Scott here!
