Conversations on Learning is a project that allows students, parents and teachers to answer questions, tell stories, give advice and reflect on the experience of learning the violin.
Hearing personal stories is one of the most effective ways of learning for all ages. It is one of the reasons why students in a rich music community have more successful outcomes. They learn to navigate the journey with the help and experiences of others around them.
These videos build on the ideas found in Music with Motivation with reflections about what students like about the violin, what they don't like, what makes them want to play or makes them quit.
