Abstract

This paper summarises some of the key features of a doctoral research study
into the influence that music teacher biography (background, education,
environment) has on their practice as a teacher in the secondary music classroom
in England. The research focuses principally on the development of a range of
competencies and learning contexts necessary to the growing musician and how
far these can be observed in the activities in which the young people participate
in the classroom and the priorities placed upon them by the teachers. Springing
from this research has also been a consideration of the developing identity of the
music teacher, especially where it may conflict with their identity as a musician.
There are a number of implications for teachers themselves, for schools and local
authorities, as well as for education policy and its makers.
