    Children love to be asked, What do you want to be when you grow up? because for whateverreason, they already have an answer ready. Some of the most common responses includedoctors, engineers and entrepreneurs. While most childrens aspirations are attainable, theirgoals usually change as they are exposed to more of the world and its challenges. It is veryuncommon to find an adult who is in the profession that they have always dreamed of. In thissense, my pursuit of the teaching profession, especially in the field of music, is rare, since it hasalways been my childhood dream to become a teacher. After committing myself to musicthroughout high school and pursuing a degree in music education and performance in college,I am able to begin to formulate my philosophy on education. Included in this philosophy aremy personal views concerning why music is an important aspect of the educational system, towhom music should be taught, and how it should be taught.

    The first question that I considered while formulating my philosophy was, Why? What isthe purpose of teaching music? Unlike many other professions, the gratification fromteaching music comes in a form other than a paycheck. In my opinion, the most importantreason to teach music is to pass it on. By sharing music with others, it is possible to makeothers as passionate about it as you are. Even if a student cannot play very well, it is stillimportant to help him to understand and appreciate music and its importance in hislife. Another purpose of teaching music is to give students something they can succeed atthrough practice, which provides them with a sense of purpose and pride.

    Music has been recognized as an important subject to build 21st century skills. Music helps inconnecting all the subjects together. Programmes designed for music in schools help studentsto develop skills such as time management, communication, patience, and perseverance. Also,for many students, music helps them to express themselves in ways that sitting in a classroomall day never could. The purpose of music education is to teach a universal language tostudents that they will be able to use no matter where they are, for the rest of their lives.

    Next it is important to consider to whom music should be taught and the role of thestudent in a musical classroom. I believe that music should be taught to anyone and everyonewithout exception. Music truly is a universal language, and I believe that with enough creativityit can be taught to anyone who is willing to learn it. A student with a disability or even astudent who does not speak English can be taught the fundamentals of music and be able toappreciate its significance. Since music is a form of expression, it is very important for studentsto have an open mind when approaching it. Since not all students come into a music

    My Philosophy in Music Education

  • classroom with this kind of mindset, it is the job of the teacher to connect with them and makethem interested in learning music. Although it is the responsibility of the student to practice inorder to improve, it is mostly the responsibility of the teacher to motivate his or her studentsand make them want to practice and improve their skills.

    Since the success of a music teacher lies in their ability to reach their students, themanner in which music is taught is quite significant. First of all, I believe that it is very importantfor a music teacher to use many different types of teaching techniques in order to reach asmany students as possible. For example, some students learn better visually, some aurally,and some kinesthetically. It is imperative for a teacher to appeal to all of these differentlearners by using variation in his or her lessons. Also, music should be taught with passion,vigor, and life. If a student realizes how passionate a teacher is about their subject matter, theymay begin to wonder why and have more interest in the subject. Although it is important tostay on task while teaching in a music classroom, I also think that it is important to bespontaneous. Taking a short break from a rehearsal to tell a story about high school bandcamp or a music professor in college can be a way to connect with students by making themrealize how much music has impacted their teachers life. Whenever my high school banddirector would tell the band stories about his music teachers in the past, I admired him forsharing a part of his history with us, and I aspire to leave a legacy that my students can somedaytell their students about in the future. Overall, I believe that the most effective way to teachmusic is for the teacher to share their passion with their students and reach them byconnecting with them on their level.
