LOVE THE JOB, LOSE THE STRESS

Love the Job, Lose the Stress: Successful Social and Emotional Learning in the Modern Music Classroom

by Lesley Moffat

About the Author

Addressing the Social and Emotional needs of teachers and students has been the focus of Lesley Moffat’s life’s work. Too often, focus is solely on students’ SEL needs, but it really starts with the teacher’s social and emotional health that determines the efficacy of their students’ success in this area.

This book outlines the steps to The First Four Minutes, Lesley’s simple but extremely powerful protocol for addressing the Social and Emotional Learning needs for students and teachers. She’s been using it in her classroom for many years, and teachers everywhere are discovering the difference it makes in their own and their students’ stress levels when they adopt this remarkable process.

Lesley has worked with thousands of music educators around the world, teaching them how they can restructure the first four minutes of their classes in a way that immediately reduces stress levels for them and for their students, essentially “tuning their brains and bodies” in preparation for learning.
This skill is something that can be taught and developed, just like we teach students other skills.

100% virtual since March 13, 2020, Lesley has been applying the lessons taught in this book with her students as they struggle with the loss of so many things they love while helping them use music as a tool for managing emotions and mental health. Rather than retiring as planned in June of 2020, Lesley has remained in her position as Director of Bands in order to address the mental health of her students during the pandemic and to stay current with the ever-changing stressors of students and educators.
