A Degree of Independence: Teachers' Approaches to Instrumental Tuition in a University College
Burwell, Kim
British Journal of Music Education, v22 n3 p199-215 Nov 2005
Undergraduate training represents a crucial stage of development for instrumentalists, including singers, as they begin to mature as independent musicians and learners. This paper asks how instrumental and vocal teachers in higher education approach this stage of student development. It focuses on the use of questions by teachers, as they cultivate the students' contribution to their own learning. The basis of the study is a research project in a UK University College, investigating the conduct of instrumental lessons through video evidence, interviews and questionnaires.
