• Abstract

    Relevance of the topic: In today’s music world, where competition is always at a high level, musicians face unpredictable challenges, and thus, there is a need for effective methods of development and self-improvement. The purpose of this article is to examine the various aspects of coaching approaches in music practice and to explore how these methods can help musicians develop as professionals and engage with their audiences. From traditional one-on-one coaching formats to innovative online approaches and group sessions, we’ll explore the types of requests that performing musicians most often make to coaches and the variety of tools that can be used to achieve musical excellence and success in the performance industry. The object of study is coaching approaches in the practice of music performance. The results allowed identifying the key factors influencing the effectiveness of learning in music when applying coaching approaches.
