The Habits of Musicianship: Musical Excellence from the Start

  • thumbnail for Robert Duke, James L. Byo
  • Nearly all teachers agree that the primary long-term goals of music performance instruction center on musical fluency, independence, and artistry.We illustrate in this session how to create experiences for young learners that emphasize these goals and facilitate meaningful music-making from the very first days of instruction. Our approach leads young instrumentalists to think and behave like accomplished musicians beginning on the first day of class and continuing throughout their musical lives.
