1 What is musical learning?
It might seem strange to begin a course on ‘teaching’ with a section on learning. However, as the eminent music educationalist Keith Swanwick (2008) says, teaching cannot be said to have taken place unless learning has occurred. Teaching therefore should not, and cannot, be conceived of as separate from learning. As Jo Glover puts it, ‘The connection between teaching and learning is not hard wired – we cannot say that “I teach, therefore you will learn”’ (2008, p. 1).
