Instrumental teaching in the UK is characterised by a lack of regulation and curriculum, whereby individuals can teach with no training or qualification. Kerry Boyle explores the way in which individuals who begin teaching can negotiate successful careers in music without formal training. Existing studies suggest that individuals in this context have complex understandings of professional identity, preferring to identify as musicians or performers rather than teachers, even when most of their income is derived from teaching. Boyle explores the complex working lives of instrumental teachers in the UK, including routes into instrumental teaching and the specific meanings associated with the role and identity of the professional musician for individuals involved in portfolio careers in music. Through an examination of the lived experience of instrumental teachers, this study highlights the need to revise existing notions of the professional musician to acknowledge contemporary careers in music. The resulting insights can be used to inform and enhance existing approaches to careers in music and contribute to career preparation in undergraduate music students.

This study examined how music teacher identity is constructed through practice and shaped by the discourses that surround teacher's work in classrooms. Researchers of music teacher identity have primarily focused on a sociological framework of identity construction and found conflicting identities of performer and teacher at play in undergraduate music education majors and practicing teachers. Borrowing from recent scholarship in teacher identity that adopts a poststructural framework for the construction of identity, this study investigated the construction of music teacher identity, specifically those of three practicing instrumental music teachers, to examine the discourses that shape their work. By investigating the construction of music teacher identity, this study documents the complexities involved in instrumental music teaching through the stories of three instrumental music teachers. A multiple case study was used to examine the discourses that surround the participants' work, how they navigate multiple discourses, and the complex relationship that exists between teacher identity and teacher practice. Data collection involved in-depth interview, field notes from non-participant observation and participant journal entries. Data analysis uncovered emerging themes of identity construction through identification of dilemmas and successes in practice. In addition, narrative analysis revealed how participants constructed meaning and identity through relaying stories of experience. As a result of this study, a complex image of the instrumental music teacher was created, one in which issues such as traditional and progressive pedagogies, class, race, sexuality, competition, and politics shape the work and identity construction of participants. Teachers negotiated a balance between instrumental pedagogy modeled after the conductor, and pedagogy influenced by student-centered, creative approaches to music learning. In addition, contextual issues related to their individual school settings, such as the class and race of their students, competition among music teachers, and the political structure of schools influenced how they developed as teachers. Where much of the previous research found that teachers experienced tension between musician and teacher identities, this study found that participants focused less on what it meant to be a musician and more on the complexity of teaching practice, exposing the dilemmas and tensions involved in shaping their teacher identity, rather than performer identity.

Author: Robert Lennon
Playing a musical instrument is not only immensely enjoyable and satisfying but has far-reaching implications for educational achievement and personal development that can last an entire lifetime. Yet, of the thousands upon thousands of young people who begin to learn musical instruments every year, only a relatively small proportion continue playing long enough to reap the untold, undisputed benefits. 'Instrumental Music Teaching' provides experienced and inexperienced teachers alike with remedies for this no less than tragic state of affairs, based on the author's extensive experience as a music educator. This approachable but thought-provoking book proposes simple, straightforward strategies for ensuring that learners' initial motivation for taking up their instrument is nurtured and maintained from the very first lesson. While outlining accessible approaches to developing instrumental technique within a vibrant musical context, the author provides workable solutions for teachers who, more often than should be necessary, are obliged to deal with the disillusionment that results from a realisation that playing an instrument is not easy: a realisation that, all too frequently, leads to loss of interest and eventual withdrawal from an activity that could be life-enhancing if only it were continued a little longer. In addition to teaching techniques that combine the essential elements of instrumental playing with broader competencies such as improvisation, composition and aural awareness, imaginative methods of teaching musical notation together with means of ensuring effective practice, and of communicating with students in ways that are meaningful and motivating, are proposed. All are underpinned by sound rationale resulting from the author's extensive interest in, and research into, the educational value of musical activity, as well as established psychological theories and more recent discoveries in neuroscience. This eminently readable and readily comprehensible book will provide any aspiring or established instrumental music teacher, who is open to some re-evaluation of conventional dogma, with a means of approaching their critically important role with confidence, and of deriving the greatest possible satisfaction from their teaching, whether it be of beginners or more advanced players. This work is derived, in large part, from an earlier, no longer available, book by the same author entitled 'Teaching Young Instrumentalists'. In the present volume, the shared material is refined, developed and restructured, omitting the sections on group instrumental teaching which form the basis of a separate title.

The Oxford Handbook of Preservice Music Teacher Education in the United States identifies the critical need for increased cultural engagement in Pre-K-12 music education. Collectively, the handbook's 56 contributors argue that music education benefits all students only if educators activelywork to broaden diversity in the profession and consistently include diverse learning strategies, experiences, and perspectives in the classroom. In this handbook, contributors encourage music education faculty, researchers, and graduate students to take up that challenge.Throughout the handbook, contributors provide a look at ways music teacher educators prepare teachers to enter the music education profession and offer suggestions for ways in which preservice teachers can advocate for and adapt to changes in contemporary school settings. For example, educators canexpand the types of music groups offered to students, from choir to jazz ensemble. Building upon students' available resources, contributors use research-based approaches to identify the ways in which educational methods and practices must transform in order to successfully challenge existing musiceducation boundaries.
The book will also be of interest to dyslexia specialists who have hitherto directed their concentration towards the language-based problems of the dyslexic. Instrumental Music for Dyslexics is written mainly for music teachers.

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Instrumental Music for Dyslexics is written mainly for music teachers. It describes dyslexia in layman's terms and explains how the various problems which a dyslexic may have can affect all aspects of learning to play a musical instrument. It alerts the music teacher with a problem pupil to the possibilities of that pupil's having some form of dyslexia. Although Sheila Oglethorpe is primarily a piano teacher the general principle behind most, if not all, the suggestions is such that they can be adapted for use by other instrumentalists. The book presents ways in which the music teacher can contribute to the self esteem and thereby the general welfare of the dyslexic pupil who is often musically gifted and has much to offer. The book will also be of interest to dyslexia specialists who have hitherto directed their concentration towards the language-based problems of the dyslexic.
