ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of striving to stay innovative and energized to make teaching creative and productive. Some steps recommended include evaluation, reorganization, trying something new, using information and resources, exploring opportunities and being creative. It is said that the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) membership indicates commitment, but some independent teachers do not think of their studios as being a business. To reorganize, cleaning and simplifying files is suggested. Records should be place on the computer for easier access. Teachers should avoid monotonous use of repertoire to keep teaching interesting. Planning imaginative recitals and unique locations is also suggested.
