Abstract and Keywords

Teachers of musical instruments have historically focused on ensuring that their students develop a secure technical foundation. They often discourage students from playing certain pieces until they are “ready” and take a linear approach, where each stage of technical development must be perfected before the next stage can be reached. But children live in the present and want those musical rewards now. As a result, they turn to resources available on the internet or ask for help from other people who can meet their musical needs. This article discusses the implications for music teachers.

Keywords: music teaching, instrumental learning, musical instruments, music teachers
