Title: Ktoré kompetencie učiteľa hudobného umenia považujú učitelia úspešných detských interpretov za dôležité?
Author: Ľubomíra Záhradníková

Abstract: This contribution's topic revolves around the competencies of musical arts teachers at elementary arts schools. The effort to examine teacher competencies in more than a purely academic manner – in isolation from real instructional context – has resulted in a research design aptly captured by the question: What competences of a musical arts teacher are considered important by instructors of successful young music performers? Using Q-methodology, we analyzed the opinions of fifteen selected instructors. Based on teacher competency spectrum, we designed 85 Q-type postulates which the participants ordered hierarchically, in ascending order, into eleven areas. We consequently conducted a quantitative analysis, calculating the average Q-type point value and the standard deviation. Our analysis yields the following top three Q-types: 1. Having a postive relationship with children; 2. Having the ability to respect a child's dignity under all circumstances; 3. Having a positive relationship with music and one's musical instrument – and we argue that these become a musical arts teacher's creed. We consider our research to be a template or a model for further, analogous and more comprehensive research studies that aim at content optimization as part of teachers' preparation for their profession.
