Teaching Bibliography to Performers in a University School of Music: Ruth Watanabe

In university schools of music, the typical student body includes undergraduates and graduates seeking degrees in performance, music history, ethnomusicology, theory, composition, and education. Having experienced music lessons and practice-schedules from a comparatively early age, these students are, for the most part, a dedicated and disciplined group. They have had to achieve a high scholastic rating to meet the requirements for acceptance into an accredited university or a well-established graduate school andalso for the most part-possess a better than average intelligence. They are young people whom it is our privilege to teach, with the aim of guiding them further toward their collegiate and professional goals.
