Praxial

Praxial teaching philosophy in music emphasises the practical, hands-on experience of making music as the core of music education. The term praxial is derived from the Greek word “praxis”, which means “practice” or “doing”. The Praxial philosophy recognises that students should be actively engaged in their own learning. Making music is not simply about theories & techniques, but also about practical application of knowledge and skills in real-world situations.
