NewMusicBox Feature on Composition and Education

NewMusicBox, a multimedia publication, is featuring a provocative series of articles on composition and education under the title “How We Learn Now: Education Week.”

According to Molly Sheridan of NewMusicBox, “So far this week, we’ve heard from Evan Tobias on the intersection of new music, music education, and participatory culture, and Ellen McSweeney has explored how music schools are balancing the rise of MOOCs with the challenges of copyright restrictions in this new format. We’ve traced compositional instruction back through generations of influence and discovered how sometimes teaching isn’t about having all the answers, but instead occasionally leaving a few questions open.

An introduction to the feature and a complete index of the week’s posts is available here.”
