Lorenzo Lefebre Posted April 13, 2022 Share Posted April 13, 2022 Hello fellow (student) composers, I'm currently doing some research on how composition teachers teach composition/evaluate the compositions of their students. Especially considering the idea that a teacher should take into account to allow the student to develop him/herself towards a 'unique' identity. My main question is: how can a teacher bring about the highest level of quality within a student without imposing his/her ideology upon the student? In other words how does a teacher give feedback/improve the student without trying to 'manipulate' the unique identity of the student? Feel free to answer this as an open question. Here is a short survey if you don't feel like writing out a big answer: 1. Does my teacher have a big influence on the way i compose? 2.Do i consciously change the way i compose to satisfy my teacher? 3.Does my teacher force his/her musical ideology upon me or am i free to discover my own ideology? 4.Do i see a problem with my teacher adjusting my work and thereby not allowing me to express my own identity as a composer? 5.How does my teacher evaluate my compositions? (open question). I appreciate any comment. Thanks a lot! Kind regards, Lorenzo 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
