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)
