Challenges of Observing:  ­Assumptions    (*Observing musical behaviors: tempo, dynamics, rhythm, form)    ­Avoiding personal judgments, being patient    ­Understanding developmental issues/delays  ­don’t make negative conclusions, “they can’t play,” “they’re not musical”  ­avoid blanket statements    ­Avoid the word “able”; judgments   ­”they are ‘able’ to do this”; if you say this, you are saying you know their  entire life. That may have been the only time they have ever done it.  ­“your child is not able…”  ­you don’t know that!  ­this will make parents angry  ­instead, “at the time of my observation, my client tapped their left  foot 16 times at forte at a steady beat,” rather than “they are able to  keep a steady beat.”    ­You can miss things through judging rather than observing    ­Objective behaviors rather than subjective  ­“What did they do or say?”
