Sharing the Podium: Exploring the Process of Peer Learning in Professional Conducting
Bartleet, Brydie-Leigh; Hultgren, Ralph
British Journal of Music Education, v25 n2 p193-206 Jul 2008
We discuss a recent peer-learning project we undertook as co-conductors of the Young Conservatorium Wind Orchestra at Griffith University. Drawing on current educational theory on peer learning and material from our conducting practice and research, we explore how this approach offers professional conductors the opportunity to work together in an inclusive and empowering learning environment. We outline our peer learning context, the learning relationship we shared, the most significant musical outcomes of such a process, and the implications for conducting pedagogy and the professional development of conductors.
