Ever wondered what the job really entails? What are some of the things that most college classes don't talk about? Come and enjoy diverse discussions about the real life of teaching music. The three panelists cover elementary, middle and high school grade levels. In addition, each specializes in either band, choral or orchestra.

Three local music educators share their experience being a teacher. Their insights will benefit students who end up teaching music in rural communities. This lecture series also will be useful for students looking for advice in the general field of teaching.

Rebecca Nelson is a skilled soprano in the Alaska Chamber Singers. Currently teaching choir at South Anchorage High School, she has been teaching in the Anchorage School District for 10 years.

Robert Arms is a principal percussionist of the Anchorage Symphony. He has been the band and jazz director at Romig Middle School for the past seven years.

Nathan Levine teaches elementary orchestra at Campbell Elementary and in both intermediate and advanced orchestra at Mears Middle School.
