Pointing out the obvious (2017)

About this exposition

My main question is: ‘In which ways can I guide a student to improve as a trombone player following the framework of Jan Kagarice?’ My conclusions involve both explanations and exercises, because my research aims on being a practical reference guide for trombone and brass players. The exercises can be used for practice, but could also be examples of how to apply the conclusion in daily practice. In my paper I describe my research process and conclusions. In my presentation I will place an emphasis on the practical use of my findings as a player by presenting the results not only in words but also in live examples by myself. The main outcome of my research is that we need to pay respect to and take in account the individual needs of every student. I have found many tools to guide students to improve their playing and for every student I try to choose the required exercises or words. In relation to my research question, the way to guide the students is to focus on more efficiency and more natural playing. I can guide a student to improve as a trombone player by observing the student to find out it’s individual needs. This observation guides me to choose personalized exercises to help the student play more efficient and natural. By sharing my findings in this paper I hope to create a reference guide for other brass players and teachers. My research consists of four methods: 1. Self-reflection 2. Reflection on my teaching 3. Researching literature 4. Talks and interview
