This subject introduces students to philosophies of music education, principles of teaching and learning in music, curriculum planning and implementation, teaching methods and techniques, and selection of teaching materials. An investigation of the influences of ideas from Orff, Kodaly, Curwen, Dalcroze, Suzuki, Schafer, Elliott, Small, Swanwick and others in the field of music education underpins the study.
On completion of this subject students should have developed an understanding of issues central to the conduct of private instrumental and vocal teaching practice. Using well-known music pedagogies as a starting point, the role of the teacher, underlying philosophical issues, learning processes, and assessment techniques should be better understood.
