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.

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. Syllabus.

  • 51. 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
  • 52. Economics of Group LEARNING • • • • Not just 30 with 6+ Teachers. Immediate Target of 120 Then 300 Then 1000+ 52
  • 53. 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

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
  • 71. 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
