Tuning In - Practical Psychology for Musicians

Lucinda Mackworth-Young

Publisher: Informance

Tuning In is for all instrumental and singing teachers who teach individually or in groups.

It combines relevant and accessible psychology with a wealth of practical music teaching and performing experience, so that you can deepen your understanding of why pupils do and don’t learn, how they learn, and how best to help them.

It will help you improve your relationship with pupils, motivate them to practise, and prepare them (and you!) for secure and anxiety-free performances. It will also help you develop and maintain a good working relationship with pupils’ parents.

In particular, it spells out the intuitive processes which underlie all good teaching and performing, so that these processes can be used with conscious intent, to greater effect.

The book can be read straight through, used as a resource, or studied as a course.

“A real eye-opener: Every music teacher should read this book!”

“My nightmare pupils improved overnight!”

“Shed new light and transformed my career!”
