Motivating students who don’t like music
Practical ideas and guidance for inspiring enthusiasm in students who don't enjoy music.
In an ideal world, all of your students would bound into your classroom, bursting with excitement about what you are about to do in your lesson. The truth is that students’ enthusiasm for music is often something that has to be won, and as teachers we need to plan how we will achieve this.
It may not be easy, and what works with some students may not work with others, but what I hope to do here is give you some ideas for motivating students who feel that music just isn’t their ‘thing’.
