Thomas De Baets: On-the-Spot Music Teaching

“On-the-Spot Music Teaching”. The Music Teacher in Direct Musical Interactions

  • Research Group Music Education & Theory

This study focuses on the influence of musical skills of music teachers on the musical-agogic changes in pupils of general education. The main issue is investigating the importance of the artistic-musical component of music teaching and its relation to the musical-agogic processes of change in pupils, more specifically in general education. What distinguishes this inquiry is the starting position. We take the point of view of a musician in his personal growth as a music teacher and a musician in interaction with his pupils.

Traditionally musical and agogic skills are not linked. The question is whether an integrated approach of musical and agogic skills can improve the quality of the changes that take place in our pupils. We study the specialist literature and practical experience will complement the theory.
