Reply To: Global music education in the 21st century


I’m glad that teacher preparation keeps coming up in this thread. I had a wonderful education as an undergraduate but I wasn’t necessarily specifically prepared for the classes that I currently teach (alternative high school classes). With music and education constantly evolving, it’s difficult to keep up! But, I do think we could do a better job teaching undergraduate music education majors to “think outside of the box” and learn to explore unfamiliar music. They need the tools to know how to explore new types of music and what to do with the music they encounter.
