(p.1) Chapter 1 Introduction
An Orientation to Musical Pedagogy

Birch P. Browning

Oxford University Press

It is possible to be both an artistic musician and an effective educator. Becoming both is a process that requires relentless effort to comprehend and apply basic understandings of how music works and how students learn. The core concepts of both fields can be organized into frameworks of understanding, from which details can be derived and on which musical and instructional decisions can be based. During the process of becoming a musician-educator, the student must make wise decisions about what needs to be learned, how it will be learned, and how the knowledge and skills will be used or engaged. Above all, the student needs to be curious.
