About the Book

The Virtusoso Teacher examines the teacher/student relationship in classical music training and questions many of the default assumptions about how teachers approach their work, which is often based upon either their own experiences and talents, which may not be aligned with those of their students, or pedagogical traditions that have outgrown their usefulness.

It is not a manual of strictures of what to do or what not to do, rather, it is a series of essays and observations designed to interact with one's own experiences, eventually allowing the possibility of making even better choices for your students.
