The catalyst for this paper is the ongoing debate concerning formal and informal approaches to pedagogy within the music education literature.

Contrary to government policy, schooling in Botswana remains largely teacher-centred, with music teaching being no exception. However, other possibilities for classroom dynamics arise under the pressure of practical examinations and when some students have better instrumental facility than their teachers. This article describes initial…

Feyerabend argues that knowledge advances not according…
