Improving Music Teaching through Interpersonal Relationships
Royston, Natalie Steele
Music Educators Journal, v103 n4 p34-39 Jun 2017
Interpersonal relationships are fundamental to learning and human development. To develop a positive and safe classroom environment with student motivation and learning, music educators need to learn to relate and connect effectively with others. This article looks at the importance of the interpersonal relationships in the classroom environment and provides tips for active teachers to improve these relationships and for preservice teachers to observe and reflect on during preparation. As music teachers, the manner in which we connect and relate to our students will teach them much about the art of music but also the art of being a compassionate and caring human being.
