Latvian Piano Teachers' Views on an Ideal Teaching Aid for Pupils--Young Pianists
Zimele-Steina, Ineta
Discourse and Communication for Sustainable Education, v4 n1 p43-49 Feb 2015
Currently, in Latvia, an adequate teaching aid that would meet the major requirements of young novice pianists is not available. Consequently, a question arises: "What could be an ideal teaching aid for them?" The opinion survey of 165 piano teachers from all regions of Latvia was carried out according to a three-point scale, in which 30 parameters that would characterise the teaching aid were indicated. The quantitative and qualitative methods of data processing were applied in this research. The results of the survey show that an ideal teaching aid for young novice pianists should correspond to the pupils' age group and be multinational. The results of the empiric research were used to articulate the basic principles of the development of teaching aids.
