Abstract

Abstract on “The relationship between the piano teacher in private practice and music in the National Curriculum”

By Elizabeth Goddard (From the Cambridge Journal Online- Oct 2002)

This article investigates the relationship between the private music teacher and the music of the National Curriculum that is used in most schools. The article explores present insights and practices in order to gain a clearer understanding of the situation between the two groups as they coincide today. Numerous strategies for improving communications between school and private teachers are discussed with the hope that pupils feel as though their private lessons are working in harmony with their music in school. The research from the article suggests that an increased awareness needs to exist in order to develop the relationship in teaching philosophies between private teachers and the National Curriculum. The article clearly explains that the two groups need to cooperate with each other in order to further the education of today’s musicians.

I'm not exactly sure you need the first sentence -- it seems to restate the title of the article. Other than that, nice job!

Referring to the article as "the article" is okay once or twice, but try not to reapeat it too often...find another way of stating it, or just assume the audience understands that the subject being discussed is the article.

The comments above are very astute. The third sentence is too convoluted. You should also include a brief explanation that the National Curriculum is "national" in the United Kingdom.
