Cain, T. (2007) Mentoring trainee music teachers: beyond apprenticeship or reflection British Journal of Music Education, 24, (3), pp. 281-294. (doi:10.1017/S0265051707007589).

Record type: Article


This article explores the theoretical concepts of ‘apprenticeship’ and ‘reflection’ in Initial Teacher Education music mentoring. It presents two case studies of Secondary music mentoring and relates these to the theoretical concepts. The article argues that a more integrated view of music mentoring might be provided with reference to Kolb’s (1984) theory of experiential learning.
