Monthly Meeting January 2019
Jan 28, 2019
Book Club: Note by Note
“World-renowned psychologist Carol Dweck explains why it’s not just our abilities and talent that bring us success — but whether we approach our goals with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising our children’s intelligence and ability doesn’t foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to improve in school, as well as reach our own goals, personal and professional.” (from Mindset by Carol Dweck) In this talk, Dr. Kate Carter, performer and educator, will discuss the applications of Dweck’s book to music teaching and learning, including some of the ways we can challenge our students (and ourselves!) to question our mindset and to foster a healthier framework for pursuing our goals.
Are your shelves filled with music that you haven’t passed on to students? Is your studio weighed down with books that you no longer use? Clean house after the holidays and bring your musical rummage to our January meeting to sell during the coffee hour and after our meeting.
You will be asked to donate at least 25% of your sale to the NSMTA scholarship fund. Additional donations also accepted for our summer camp and college scholarships.
If you’re planning to participate, please e-mail Mary Beth at (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we know how many tables to set up. If you have items you were going to donate for the Music Boutique, you can bring those in January as well.
