Music Pedagogy Reflective Essay: According to Mills (Mills, 2006) students studying music performance at tertiary level have already made decisions on how their own teaching will differ from that they received as children. Write a reflection on your own development as an instrumental musician, with a particular focus on motivation, your skill development, your practice activity, and the role your teacher(s) played in that development.
Your reflection should address the following focus questions:
• What role did your instrumental teacher(s) play in your development?
• What are your strengths and weaknesses as a musician?
• Can you trace connections between the teaching and learning of your childhood
study and your musical abilities?
• How will your teaching of children differ from the way you have learned?
• You should draw on credible sources in supporting your own answer. The course readings should all be cited, and students aiming for higher grades should look beyond the ones provided, and find literature that is pertinent to their own ‘story’.
• When you draw ideas from published literature, they should be properly referenced, using the American Psychology Association (6th) standards. Please note that assignments that are not properly referenced will not be accepted and marked, and will be returned with the expectation that they will be resubmitted.
• All topics covered in the lecture series (sessions 2-5) should be addressed, and in some depth
• There should be a coherent structure to the response
An essay length of 1500 words, +/- 150 words is acceptable.
