The Music of Teaching
Learning to Trust Students' Natural Development
By Barbara Kreader Skalinder
The Music of Teaching focuses on an often overlooked attribute all teachers need but few consider: perception. This includes the ability to trust both students' natural development and the learning process itself to guide developing pianists down the path to musicianship.
Using a combination of stories from her 46-year teaching career and research from the fields of education and psychology, Barbara Kreader Skalinder presents the evolution of teaching from the authoritative style of the 1950s to a collaborative design, better suited to the students in today's digital world. She also examines the many ways independent teachers, without the constraints oftem imposed by school systems, can tailor their educational methods to better suit the way each individual student learns.
