Discovering the Musical Mind

Jeanne Bamberger

Oxford University Press

This chapter reports on ideas developed at MIT for self-paced independent music study. The aim of the approach is to nurture in students that enigmatic quality called “musical”—be it a “musical ear” or an individual’s capacity to give a “musical performance.” While all of us cherish these qualities, rarely do we come to grips with them directly in teaching. How often do we have or take the time to question the relation between what we teach and what we do as musicians?
