Mindfulness: An Underused Tool for Deepening Music Understanding
Falter, H. Ellie
General Music Today, v30 n1 p20-24 Oct 2016
Music teachers aim to deepen their students' music understanding. An underused tool for doing so is incorporating mindful practice into music teaching. Through discussing research, examples from the classroom, and steps for incorporating mindful practices in lesson planning, the author hopes to illustrate its potential benefits and set music teachers' minds at ease: Beginning to incorporate mindful practice is worthwhile but need not be elaborate, stressful, or intimidating.
