Reply To: Global music education in the 21st century


I have really enjoyed reading these posts. As a music education faculty member, I am curious about how we can better prepare our students to find ways to tap into different music traditions while still meeting the requirements of fairly traditional programs of study. I often talk with my students about connecting to the community by inviting local musicians into the classroom and we certainly talk about and experience music in diverse ways in our methods classes, music history courses, and ensemble performances. I would love to hear ideas about how we can better prepare future music educators to teach with and about diverse music.
