I’ve been thinking a lot about the way I speak to students. I don’t want to be so technical they don’t understand, nor do I want to rely solely on imagery that may or not make sense. In my own training I learned very little about anatomy. In fact it wasn’t until I spent a chunk of the summer of 2014 at the CCM Summer Institute at Shenandoah University that my eyes were opened! I now try to find a balance between science and imagery, but it’s often a bit tricky.
This post from The Naked Vocalist talks about the ways teacher talk to their students. I hope you’ll find it interesting!
