(p.27) Chapter 2 The Music Teacher
Growing Musicians

Bridget Sweet

Oxford University Press

As Chapter 1 focused on the adolescent music student, Chapter 2 focuses on the middle-level music educator. Teacher stories influence individual approaches to teaching music, as well as philosophies of teaching adolescent musicians and the varied roles assumed by music educators. Ultimately, individual music teachers make decisions for themselves and their students based on past experiences and knowledge, and toward what they feel is in the best interest of all within their unique teaching setting. Therefore, self-reflection is greatly encouraged in this chapter, centered around the queries “Who are you?”; “Why do you do teach the way that you do?”; and “What do you believe about teaching adolescent musicians?”

Keywords:   music educator, teaching and leadership, nurturing adolescent students, teacher as counselor, providing for students, teacher stories, self-reflection
