Instrumental Teacher Education and the Incoming Tide of Information Technology: A Contemporary Guitar Perspective
Lee, Daniel A.; Baker, William; Haywood, Nick
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v43 n5 Article 2 p17-31 May 2018
There is a metaphorical incoming tide of information technology (IT) in the global guitar community. This phenomenological study examines the activities of the online guitar community to determine its role in guitar pedagogy. It questions how the traditional teacher-student model can continue to operate amidst the floodwaters of online guitar education resources. An historical presentation, and analysis of current practice is offered, and the pedagogical value of some online resources are scrutinised. The process of enculturation through Contemporary Popular Music (CPM) education is discussed from the perspective of guitar pedagogy and the implications for instrumental guitar teaching are examined. This study was designed to examine the activities of the online guitar community to gain a perspective on the phenomenon for the purposes of informing teacher educators working with pre-service instrumental guitar teachers.
