Topic: Student Retention and Lesson Atmosphere
Presenter: Kenneth Thompson
We have quite a task ahead of us in each lesson. We teach theory, technique, reading skills, memory skills, performance skills etc. Lesson atmosphere is way that we convey all of this information. How do I say it? How do I want the student to feel when they are with me? Have I set up a safe enough environment for learning to occur but an intense and challenging enough environment for follow through to occur?
