Editorial Reviews


MT columnist and teaching guru Paul Harris has published The Virtuoso Teacher, his latest guide for instrumental and vocal teachers. Harris's idea is that the lesson is the music teacher's instrument - so why not become a virtuoso? Through chapters on emotional intelligence, dealing with challenging pupils and taking the stress out of learning, Harris uses his trademark light touch to address some of the most fundamental issues in music teaching. Music Teacher Magazine, May 2012 This is a book which all teachers of whatever instrument should read. The book contains a mine of information and sheer common sense. I know Paul to be a wonderful teacher and he should be encouraged to run courses which would be extremely useful and beneficial to aspiring teachers. Kit Shepherd, Director (National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain)

Written by respected music teacher, Paul Harris, The Virtuoso Teacher is an indispensable guide for instrumental and voice teachers wishing to hone their skills and become effective pedagogues. Topics include how to be a master communicator, getting the best out of pupils, dealing with challenging pupils, and asking the right questions. It is written in an easy-to-understand format. Much of the information is common sense, but it is very helpful to have it spelled out as a reminder of what should be done during a lesson.

My personal favorite chapter was the one on asking the right questions. It is important to stimulate pupils' minds and get them to think about the music they are playing. Mr. Harris provides some excellent examples of questions that should be asked.

I highly recommend this book for all music teachers.

While I have not finished the book at this writing, Paul Harris does an excellent job of helping both the new teacher and the seasoned teacher see the importance of various teaching methods. In addition, he stresses the necessity of understanding the entire child/student for success.
