(p.9) Chapter 2 Transitioning from Student to Teacher
An Orientation to Musical Pedagogy

Birch P. Browning

Oxford University Press

The chapter discusses the importance of students’ examining their motivation for becoming a music educator. As a part of this process, students learn that they must challenge what they think they already know about being a teacher and understand the purposes of public education in the United States. Effective teachers are described as having specific understandings about their subject, about students, about how to structure the subject so that their students can learn efficiently, and about the context in which they teach. Effective teachers use their specialized knowledge, much of which is learned through deliberate instructional experience, to make and assess instructional decisions. A framework for understanding teaching is presented, and a project asks students to write about their motivations to teach music.
