We all have a “teaching philosophy”, whether we realise it or not.
Mine strongly advocates holistic, personalised, life-centred education. My model of The Three Treasures of Musical Learning is a key component to complement these values.
Paying attention to all Three Treasures – and at all stages of learning, from the youngest beginner to the most advanced professional – leads to deeper learning, fuelling progress and fostering a lifelong love relationship with music.
In this article I will explain what the Three Treasures are, and offer some tips on how focusing on them can help us develop as effective teachers.
