This unit provides students with an overview of the developmental characteristics of learners and music learning in a one-to-one or small group instrumental/vocal setting. Students develop an understanding of a range of teaching, learning and assessment theories and methodologies relevant to the studio teaching context for individuals and groups.
Lecture/workshops enable students to understand music performance from the points of view of the learner and the teacher. Students develop skills in analysing repertoire in order to plan for teaching it, and an appreciation of a range of learning styles and modalities that students may display. Advocacy for music education, ethical and professional standards are key elements of the unit.
