Achieving Musical Success in the String Classroom

Karel Butz

Oxford University Press

The pedagogical ideas of Mimi Zweig, Paul Rolland, and Shinichi Suzuki are provided and explained how they can be applied into a string classroom setting. The chapter discusses the purpose of learning a string instrument, why string education matters, creating an “end goal” for orchestra students, establishing a “healthy foundation” for music learning, developing musicianship, facilitating musical success, treating students as artists, and defining classroom goals. The author’s personal mantras, based on his general philosophy of teaching and playing, provide a personal example of how guiding teaching principles apply to everyday string teaching, and enrich the learning experience for both teachers and students.

Keywords:   Zweig, Rolland, Suzuki, string, pedagogy, musicianship, advocacy, learning, education
