This thought-provoking book . . . offers constructive advice to teachers about how to communicate with students . . . Less experienced teachers, in particular, will find much useful practical advice here, and all teachers will be given plenty of opportunity to evaluate their methods. (Nathaniel Vallois, The Strad December 08)
Readers will find Mills's lucid, frank presentation of facts - as well as her conclusions - revealing and at times alarming. . . this is an extremely useful compendium on this under-researched subject. (International Piano July 08)
About the Author
Dr Janet Mills began her career teaching music (and mathematics) in a comprehensive school in West Yorkshire. Subsequently, she was a teacher educator at Westminster College in Oxford and the University of Exeter. Her work as an HM Inspector of Schools included observation of more than 1000 instrumental lessons and the development and implementation - with instrumental teachers - of the first national system for inspecting Local Authority Instrumental Music Services. Along the way, she learnt violin and singing, and taught herself to play several other instruments. Janet Mills was a Research Fellow at the Royal College of Music in London and in 2004 won a National Teaching Fellowship. She wrote Music in the School (2005), Music in the Primary School (1991), and many articles in books, magazines, and research journals.
