Abstract

The sheer complexity of teaching stringed instruments can be overwhelming. In addition to the technical skills specific to each instrument, students need also to be taught terminology, composers' history and style, basic theory, memorization, and a solid sense of self-esteem that enables stage confidence. To improve efficiency and effectiveness, the multiple elements of teaching an instrument can be organized into three categories: skills, knowledge, and affective domain.
