Ideas from professional musicians for increasing student engagement in music lessons

Is improving student engagement one of your targets this year?

We speak to teachers all the time who are dealing with the challenge of student retention – no matter how creative and innovative their lessons. We know, with all the demands on students’ time, how music lessons can drop down the priority list.

That’s why we’ve spoken to some professional musicians to create this guide, to help spark some new approaches to student engagement, sometimes with the help of Trinity Rock & Pop. Included in the guide:

  • Strategies to make lessons 50/50 to encourage accountability
  • Tips on making multimedia your ally for student engagement
  • Exploring a possible future in music to focus and inspire
  • Ideas for unlocking enthusiasm through a more-varied repertoire.

Hear ideas and experiences from professional musicians:

Chris Johnson, multi-GRAMMY award winning musician, writer and producer described by Live Nation as ‘one of the greatest and most in-demand international drummers on Earth’. His credits include Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Stevie Wonder, Snoop Dogg and Camila Cabello. Chris is an official Trinity Ambassador.

Michael Price, Emmy award-winning composer for piano, orchestral and soundtrack work, including TV such as Sherlock, Dracula and Unforgotten who also worked with Metallica on their live ‘S&M’ album.
