Free webinar this weekend with Adrian Underhill – ‘The Jazz of Teaching and Learning’
14 September 2013, 3pm BST
When teaching we probably start out with a plan developed before the lesson. As the lesson unfolds the predictable occurs and we depart from the plan, and the class becomes a living interaction rather than the enactment of a script. The same happens when jazz improvisers depart from the sheet music. Such improvisation makes up the bulk of most lessons yet remains ‘invisible’. I therefore refer to it as the dark matter of teaching. This dark matter of teaching is not properly represented in the plan, course book, material, training or supervision, and thus neither critiqued nor developed. In this webinar I will explore this theme and offer suggestions for making this dark matter of teaching visible, discussible, and improvable.
