Music teachers' perceptions of effective teaching.

Button, S. W. (2010) 'Music teachers' perceptions of effective teaching.', Bulletin of the Council for Research in Music Education. (183). pp. 25-38.


The purpose of this study was to investigate the perceptions of the effective teacher, assoicated to the teaching and learning of music at Key Stage 3. The quantitative data was obtained through the administration of a questionnaire to 26 music teachers, immediately following their first term of teaching. The questioonnaire consisted of 48 statements related to the effective teaching of music. Results demonstrate that there is an imperative for music teachers, when teaching general class music, to deploy a variety of teaching strategies and to bridge the gap between pedagogical expertise, subject knowledge, and how pupils learn if they are to become expert practitioners and maximize their potential as change agents.
