Educating Orchestral Musicians
Calissendorff, Maria; Hannesson, Haukur F.
British Journal of Music Education, v34 n2 p217-223 Jul 2017
This article examines research on the specific training of musicians before they begin work as players in professional orchestras. Most of the research is in the area of education. The present article suggests that little research exists that is specific to the development of a traditional orchestra musician from an early age through the music education system, although considerable research exists on the development and broadening of the actual role of the professional musician in a changing world (portfolio careers).
