I'm in my final year at university and I'm writing my dissertation on the advantages and disadvantages of grades and was wondering if anyone would be willing to comment on their personal teaching/studying experiences and how it affected them musically.
So, some general questions I would like to ask are:
- Positive and negative affects the grading system has on a typical learner?
- Do grades result in a competitive arena and is this right?
- Should music be measured?
- Should we use grades to define skills?
Or anything similar to these are welcomed.
Thank you in advance.
