What is it about?
...an undergraduate singer who - exceptionally - said that her teacher's approach was not appropriate for her, at her current stage of development. Based on a single lesson observation, the study uses 'rich transcription' to explore verbal, nonverbal and performance behaviour, to see what might be at issue in this teacher-student relationship.
Why is it important?
