“It is beneficial for the artist if his human dimension is grounded in educational work that connects the artist to his audience in an organic manner” (Tsippi Fleischer)
In addition to composition, Tsippi Fleischer is one of the most active contributors to musical education in Israel. She was one of the founders of the Pedagogical Council of the Faculty of Music Education at Levinsky College, taught and supervised generations of music students at the Institute, and lectured for enrichment courses and teacher’s continuing education in music courses on behalf of the Ministry of Education’s supervision on music education.
Her educational work during over 40 years of teaching at the Levinsky College of Education became a trademark among her colleagues and students. Fleischer published many studies in which she described her educational approach, characterized by intensifying musical experience through depth and precision in theoretical-musical analysis, affording complementary knowledge from extra-musical disciplines (history, society, literature, philosophy) and cultivating personal and professional dedication of teachers to their students, children and adults alike. “As an abstract art, it [music] requires both precision and depth . . . The progression from sensory impression to an inspection of the elements of the work is especially important, and back – to enjoyment already nourished by the accumulated layers of knowledge . . . In order to complete the musical picture, effort must be devoted even towards the extra-musical picture [of] spiritual content that joins the sounds themselves in a constant flow . . . This pedantic approach to the countless musical aspects draws the student nearer to expert knowledge. . . [together with] a belief in the strongest personal connection between teacher and student.”
