Positive instruction in music studios: Introducing a new model for teaching studio music in schools based upon positive psychology

Tue, Jul 5, 2016|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , |Comments Off on Positive instruction in music studios: Introducing a new model for teaching studio music in schools based upon positive psychology

This practice paper explores the intersection of school studio-music pedagogy and positive psychology in order to enhance students’ learning and engagement. The paper has a practitioner focus and puts forward a new model of studio teaching, the Positive Instruction in Music Studios (PIMS) model that guides teachers through four key positive psychology processes that can be used in a music lesson: positive priming, strengths spotting, positive pause, and process praise. The model provides a new, positively oriented approach to studio-music pedagogy that can be integrated into specific methods-based programs to enhance student learning and engagement. · Go to Positive instruction in music studios: Introducing a new model for teaching studio music in schools based upon positive psychology →

Do you have a “jazz” mindset or a “classical” mindset?

From 99u: There’s a reason jazz wasn’t taught at the New England Conservatory before Gunther Schuller arrived in the 1960s. Artists are protective of their work, and classical musicians are no exception; many faculty members at the renowned Boston institution didn’t want the whims of jazz improvisers to “sully” their canon. The traditionalists there believed in an unambiguous divide between the realms of classical and jazz—both for themselves, and for posterity. But Gunther Schuller, who passed away on June 21 of this year, wasn’t having it. · Go to Do you have a “jazz” mindset or a “classical” mindset? →

A (nearly) comprehensive guide to the music of ‘Mad Men’

This modest display commemorates the music of Mad Men — touch the screen and pick a song. Show creator Matthew Weiner will tell you why Mr. Acker Bilk's "Stranger on the Shore," a strangely sultry instrumental by a British clarinetist that happened to be Billboard's No. 1 song of 1962, appeared on the show. Twice. · Go to A (nearly) comprehensive guide to the music of ‘Mad Men’ →
