Musically Meaningful: The Interpersonal Goals of Performance
Roesler, Rebecca A.
Music Educators Journal, v100 n3 p39-43 Mar 2014
To enhance music learning and performance, teachers can direct learners toward authentic, interpersonal goals. Teachers' aspirations for their students' positive musical experiences may be realized when learners seek to connect with their audiences and evoke responses in listeners. Instead of anxiety-promoting concerns over judgment, students can be concerned with communicating. Instead of learning isolated techniques with no apparent meaning, learners can acquire skills and knowledge that serve to realize expressive ends. Authentic, interpersonal goals can enhance expression and connect knowledge in meaningful ways, promoting the transfer of that knowledge to other situations.
