This article is a response to Rhoda Bernard's (2005) article, "Making Music, Making Selves". The author first met Dr. Bernard several years ago in the UK, at an international music education research conference at the University of Exeter. Without realising he was in the audience, Dr. Bernard cited his 1995 article "Artist or Teacher?" as an early example of research in the field of musician-teacher identity, an area on which she had focused during her doctoral studies at Harvard University. The citation was expressed positively. Some years later the author was scheduled to chair a conference session in which Bernard presented another paper on her developing work in the field of teacher identity. He was intrigued, therefore, to read her critique of his position in "Making Music, Making Selves"--something that was not evident during their earlier discussions. Bernard's article contains some interesting perspectives, although the author does have reservations concerning some of her observations and conclusions. In this article, the author presents differences in their views, conflicts, perspectives, purposes, interpretations, identities, values, voices, and conclusions. (Contains 8 notes.)
