Abstract and Keywords

Teaching is a learned profession. As such, learning how to teach music involves developing skill in connecting factual knowledge, teaching and performing skills, and musical artistry with an understanding of how students develop musicianship. This chapter presents theoretical frameworks that have evolved over the past hundred years that can help guide teacher educators in describing some of the most important ways they understand their subjects in order to teach them to others. Pedagogical content knowledge is a useful framework for describing how teachers understand their subjects to teach their students. Core practices are a set of foundational skills that allow novice teachers to begin to connect the academic, musical, and pedagogical skills and knowledge that they acquire in classrooms to facilitate student learning. Preliminary research has identified, among others, (a) developing relationships with students, (b) modeling, and (c) sequencing instruction as core practices for teaching music. Novice music teachers can develop a set of foundational practices that allow them to connect their musical knowledge and expertise with their students’ experiences.

Keywords: pedagogical content knowledge, core practices, teacher knowledge, simulation, micro-teaching, modeling, sequencing instruction, Student-teacher relationships, leave questioning in tact
