It appears that there is just some miscommunication over what works on "the Board." In my view we are looking at something akin to Twitter (as I understand it). You have a limited amount of space for a response (at least if you want anyone to read it). Additionally you usually have pointed questions that beg specifically pointed answers.


Within the context of an in person lesson, the object is ALWAYS to share the varieties of different ways to approach an issue.......hopefully allowing the student to hear and feel those differences for themselves, and hopefully having them chose better solutions in the future.


This brings up a HUGE music education problem here in the States. Where I would normally insist on nothing less than having an hour's allotted time in which to work with a student, there are MANY MANY institutionalized lessons that have to happen within thirty minutes. With that time limitation you are lucky to work with the student for an actual twenty minute period. This allows for very little good pedagogy and even less time for the student to digest anything of value. This doesn't even begin to address the high school students who are already swamped with extracurricular activities, homework, book reports.......and video games.



But in short I most certainly agree that private students need to experience the variations of "x" approach to find the answer for themselves.
