Liu, Chia-Hui
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v32 n2 p245-274 Win 2008
The purpose of this study was to investigate the development of the learning experiences of gifted young string players in Taiwan. Nine musicians under the age of 40, who had been accepted into music programs for the gifted, were invited to discuss their experiences and the development of their careers. Thorough interviews were conducted and then analyzed using a grounded theory approach. The findings of this study indicate that the training of the string players depended on 5 key elements: music abilities, music temperament, learning processes, features of their learning experiences, and the influence of the social context in Taiwan. (Contains 2 tables and 4 figures.)
