|Title: ||Lack of Talent or Miseducation: A Study of Teachers' Perceptions of Inability|
|Authors: ||Bartel, Lee R.|

perceptions of inability
|Issue Date: ||1998|
|Description: ||People's stories about their music learning are often potent with the terror experienced, the soul-deadening castigations endured, and fortunately, there are also stories of the delight and wonderment music learning engendered. Changes in classroom teaching responsibilities as a result
of current financial restraints are revealing many classroom teachers' inability to teach music because of lasting attitudes resulting from their own miseducation with music. Although people who have decided to study music to an advanced level have had positive experiences resulting in long term
engagement with music, even they have frequently experienced abusive or self confidence-shaking episodes with significant teachers that leave them with lasting discomforts or inhibitions contributing to a tendency to disengage from music. This paper addresses this important problem in music pedagogy and examines possible practices and dispositions teachers could employ to contribute to lasting engagement.|
