This book surveys emerging music and education landscapes to present a sampling of the promising practices of music teacher education that may serve as new models for the 21st century. Contributors explore the delicate balance between curriculum and pedagogy, the power structures that
influence music education at all levels, the role of contemporary musical practices in teacher education, and the communication challenges that surround institutional change. Models of programs that feature in-school, out-of-school and beyond school contexts, lifespan learning perspectives, active
juxtapositions of formal and informal approaches to teaching and learning, student-driven project-based fieldwork, and the purposeful employment of technology and digital media as platforms for authentic music engagement within a contemporary participatory culture are all offered as springboards for
innovative practice.
Michele Kaschub is a Professor of Music and Coordinator of Music Teacher Education at the University of Southern Maine. Janice Smith is an Associate Professor of Music Education and Coordinator of Undergraduate Music Education at Queens College, City University of New York.
