Constructing a Personal Orientation to Music Teaching promotes inquiry and reflection to facilitate teacher growth, lifelong learning and a disposition toward educational change. Strongly grounded in current theories and research in teacher education, the text engages readers in analyzing their own experiences in order to conceptualize the complexity of teaching; involves them in clarifying their reasons for seeking a career in teaching; supports their insights, questions, and reflections about their work; and promotes a reflective, critical attitude about schools in general as teachers are urged to think of themselves as change agents in school settings.

This method is equally suitable for individual or class instruction. The following important fundamentals are covered in this book: Directional note reading, intervals, chords and triads, scales (major and minor), keys and key signatures, finger technique and more. Teaching points are presented through appropriately graded piano compositions by the author, as well as through suitable arrangements from the works of the great masters (Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart, Chopin, Tchaikovsky).
