Pre-Service Teacher Beliefs: Are Musicians Different?
Swainston, Andrew; Jeanneret, Neryl
Victorian Journal of Music Education, n1 p17-22 2013
This paper reviews issues around teacher education and the beliefs students bring to their courses. It considers concerns about current classroom music teaching, preservice teachers' beliefs, and preservice music teachers' identity construction as the foundation for research currently being conducted at The University of Melbourne. The study is focussing on assessing preservice teacher beliefs when they enter their course, whether these beliefs change over the course of a year and if the music cohort is different from their peers.
