Teacher Modeling as an Effective Teaching Strategy: Modeling Is a Technique that Can Help Your Students Learn Effectively in Many Situations
Haston, Warren
Music Educators Journal, v93 n4 p26 Mar 2007
Modeling is used in numerous educational settings, particularly with performing ensembles. When used appropriately, teacher modeling for student imitation is a useful tool. When used inappropriately, it can be a crutch that actually prevents students from learning. The best use of modeling is to introduce new musical concepts and performance skills before students see the printed music. In this article, the author offers several ideas for using modeling and imitation in appropriate ways. (Contains 14 notes.)
