No matter the excellence of a musician's performance achievements, upon entering the professional world, it is unlikely that any musician will depend solely upon performance for income. Those who distinguish themselves as both skilled teachers and skilled performers will have a significant advantage. From the Stage to the Studio provides the tools and information necessary for musicians to become effective teachers in terms useful to both pedagogy teachers and applied music instructors, and young music students learning to teach while perfecting their performance skills. Premised on the integral partnership between pedagogy and performance, authors Cornelia Watkins and Laurie Scott offer in depth explorations of the essential components of instrumental performance, the nature of student-teacher interactions and the manner in which knowledge, skills and musicianship are most effectively conveyed. In so doing, they illuminate the profound resonance between music performance and education and show how musicians benefit as much from teaching as their students do from being taught.
Included is a wealth of information and concrete examples on everything from setting up a studio, to writing a lesson plan, to soliciting constructive feedback from students. From the Stage to the Studio serves as an essential resource for music pedagogy teachers, college performance majors who will want or need to teach and established musicians looking to add music education to their professional repertoire.
