This chapter concludes that the role of teachers is to reflect on what they do and what they know, and to pass it along to their students. Music teaching is like any art that requires more than brief consideration. It needs an ongoing analysis, exploration, and practice since a teacher's expertise will be revealed not by what they do, but what their students do. The chapter states that teachers can be effective in teaching by nurturing their artistry through practicing and performing as much as possible. They should also remember to see themselves and their musical life in a bigger picture, and be willing to extend their influence beyond their immediate situation.
