Talking Pedagogy: Stringbabies with Kay Tucker
Over the summer I had the pleasure of inviting Kay Tucker, creator of the Stringbabies teaching method to record a couple of conversations with me. I had sent her a few questions in advance and promptly went off script. This will be of interest to anyone who would like to know a bit of the methodology behind Stringbabies. These videos are not meant to be introductions to the method or any sort of sales pitch. I am interested in pedagogy and in these talks, I extract the underlying principles and begin to discuss how they are relevant to teachers and learners of music across the scope of learning – from beginners to the very advanced.
Together the videos take just under an hour to watch. Get the popcorn, boil the kettle, and pull up a chair.
Many thanks to Kay for taking the time to talk with me. I thoroughly enjoyed our time together.
