Abstract

This article describes an ongoing research
project with secondary music teachers and
teacher trainees in England which forms part of
studies for a PhD. The hypothesis on which it is
founded is that the educational, environmental,
experiential and musical background of secondary
music teachers has a significant part to play in
the curriculum they present and the manner in
which they assess the musicality of their pupils.
A ‘classically’ trained musician, for example, may
view the development of musicianship in the young
people they may teach in a more traditional manner
(eg using notation, developing strict performance
technique) than the musician who has developed
more informally (eg through improvisation and
performance by ear). This paper seeks to explore
research into the formation of secondary music
teacher and musician identity along with the notion
of what it is to be musical.
