MEDIA REVIEWS

Harris shows how to develop pupils' responsibility and musical confidence, focusing on empathy, flexibility, enthusiasm, energy, and consistent involvement. No matter if you are teaching a beginner the first steps or working on a major concerto, his principles of supremely effective teaching remain the same. Harris' inspirational book is one that had to be written and is certain to raise the benchmark for experienced teachers and the aspiring novices alike.

Strings Magazine, June 2013

It is a book to be read and re-read...It does say that it is an 'inspirational guide for instrumental and singing teacher', but it is also excellent for those employing such teachers. It would also be excellent for class music specialists to read to gain insight into excellent instrumental and singing teaching. Why limit something so good?.

Jackey Birch, SMA Guild of Adjudicators & Workshop Presenters

This is a book which all teachers of whatever instrument should read. The book contains a mine of information and sheer common sense. I know Paul to be a wonderful teacher and he should be encouraged to run courses which would be extremely useful and beneficial to aspiring teachers.

Kit Shepherd, Director (National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain)

The Virtuoso Teacher wears its considerable knowledge and inslight lightly, and is the antidote to other hefty tomes on music education....and is undoubtedly a must-read for any enlightened instrumental or vocal teacher.
