Release of The Virtuoso Teacher

Release of The Virtuoso Teacher March saw the publication of Paul Harris’ latest seminal book, The Virtuoso Teacher – a practical handbook for any instrumental teacher on the art of teaching, perfected over Paul’s full and successful career. The Virtuoso Teacher is being published in a year in which Paul Harris‘s Faber Music sales worldwide will pass the 2,500,000 mark: a remarkable achievement and great testament to his position not only as one of the world’s leading music educationalists, but also as a gifted composer who writes appealing music for players of all abilities and ages.
Talking about The Virtuoso Teacher, Paul Harris said:
“We have always conferred admiration, adulation and various kinds of star qualities (often served up in large portions) to the virtuoso performer. This book is for teachers who wish to take the great art of teaching to virtuoso levels.
Teaching is a wonderful, invigorating and hugely responsible profession. After all, we are shaping the future with the particular skills, values and beliefs that we pass on to our pupils. We deserve equal status with the virtuoso performer. My aim is to inspire teachers to believe they, too, could become a Virtuoso Teacher and that this book will help set them on their way.”

"This is a book which all teachers of whatever instrument should read. The book contains a mine of information and sheer common sense. I know Paul to be a wonderful teacher and he should be encouraged to run courses which would be extremely useful and beneficial to aspiring teachers."
