This chapter discusses the concept of comprehensive teaching and how it can help teachers who are caught in a skills-only teaching trap, a teaching method that focuses on addressing students' technical issues. Teachers who are trapped in this method spend an entire one-hour lesson or rehearsal adjusting positions, drilling rhythms, and fixing notes, leaving behind the opportunity to teach musical concepts or explore real music-making. By applying comprehensive teaching, students' skill, knowledge, and expression are reinforced in a variety of ways. The chapter further reviews some teaching principles and discusses how the integration of these concepts can create a highly productive learning environment.
