We often hear the statement, "Teaching is an art," and I agree that it is, but often the statement is a cop-out for one's inability to identify the components of artful teaching that make for effective learning. If you want to know what those components are and begin to improve your teaching effectiveness and your students progress immediately, then Intelligent Music Teaching...is the place to begin.... Bob Duke has identified the components of effective music teaching in a way that is understandable, thought-provoking, research-based and useful in a variety of music teaching settings. --American Suzuki Journal

By halfway through this book, I was a better music teacher.
Dr. Duke is the teacher I've always wanted, to help me become the teacher I've always wanted.
And it's just a book!! Well, it's not JUST a book. Apply the teachings, and you will see.
Truly transformative for the aspiring teacher. (at least it has been for me) : )
Highly, highly recommended. This literally changed my life as a teacher and the way I approached classroom lectures and rehearsal situations, from middle school to the college level.
