Teaching the beginner piano student can be an exciting yet daunting
process. A teacher must decide what skills and techniques the
student should develop and how these will be taught. There are
countless method books available for beginner students of all ages
that aid the learning process. Despite this abundance, there is
little written for the teacher that explores holistic learning for
the beginner student. In the typical 30-minute beginner lesson, how
can one cover technique, repertoire, theory, aural skills and
history? Is this even possible? Or is this a concept that authors
suggest and teachers struggle to achieve? In this study, thirteen
piano teachers in a regional Australian city were interviewed to
explore this issue and discuss "holistic learning." The findings
demonstrate that the majority of teachers are striving to provide
the best lesson for their students, but are forced to think
creatively and use multiple resources to deliver holistic and
inspiring programs for the beginner student.
