    • Mass Education Commercial viability & Grass roots Development of music 50
    • 1-to-1 vs MASS Music Education • The success of the BRITISH education is the classroom. Syllabus. Leveling. Structure. Grades and eventual standards that allow MASS education – resulting in lower costs & affordability. • The failure of western classical music in India is NOT doing this; but using a 1-to-1; gurusishya concept even for Trinity & ABRSM; making money for them at the cost of Music Education for the Student Consumer in India 51
    • Economics of Group LEARNING • • • • Not just 30 with 6+ Teachers. Immediate Target of 120 Then 300 Then 1000+ 52
    • The Economics • Current & not-viable – 30-50 students paying Rs. 500/- per hour = monthly inflow of 100,000/- per month. You can’t run a Quality Music Department with that. • Potential & viable – Assuming 1000+ school; get 300 music-students to pay for QUALITY music classes at Rs. 2,000/- per month = Rs. 6,00,000/-. Infrastructure+Resources+Class+Home+Own Learning = Some QUALITY from the music department. 53

    • Teacher Training The real gap and focus for Music International 69
    • Current ‘Teacher’ gaps / short-falls … • Mis-matched Qualifications / Certifications. • Mis-matched Experience. • Primarily one-Instrument Certified. – – – – Known problems with Trinity & even ABRSM Not performers. Weak in Theory. Do not play more than ONE instrument. • Creating Marching bands, Orchestras, Chorus are TOUGH • Every musician cannot become a Teacher. – (eg. A salesman cannot promoted to be a manager) – Motivation. Finances. Incentive. Career-choice. • Can’t teach – A syllabus. – A group. Mass Education. – Children. 70
    • The Music Teacher(s) Conundrum 1. Minimum acceptable Qualification & Certification. 2. Each Instrument is a specialisation. (There are easily 20+) 3. Mult-faceted Teachers are VERY difficult to come by and expensive. 4. Good Performers are mostly NOT good Teachers. A good Teacher is a good Coach. 5. Teaching skills; student-personalisation; using resources; communications; creating materials is a life-long, full-time discipline. 6. MUST BE good with Children. Like-it. 7. Syllabus adherence. IB. IGCSE-Elective. ABRSM; In-School or OTHER. 8. Teacher(s) Assessment. Feedback. Improvement. Growth. 71
    • Teacher Essentials • Music Practical – Play an instrument (specialisation) to an adequate capability. Performance, Recording etc. – By-ear. Aural. Vocal. Multiple instruments. • Music Theory – Education, Certification, Qualification in Music Theory, Transcriptions, Arrangement. Composing. • Soft-skills – Teaching. Use of aids. Speaking. Writing.
