Tectonic Mergers: Frictions in Music Education

We are excited that our session has been accepted for SXSWedu 2021! 



Formal music education remains regressive, focused on replication rather than innovation. Non-profits had stepped into the gap, embracing modern music-making and industry readiness. The pandemic’s tectonic shift to virtual creative technologies has disrupted both traditional and non-traditional teaching. Will virtual and non-traditional strategies connect these worlds post-pandemic?  Will these disruptive additions help us merge into more pluralist instructional approaches?

Learning Objectives

  • Examine the recurring narrative focused on past repertoire and pedagogical approaches dominating academic music education.
  • Explore how the omnipresent technology tools used in music are redefining the nature of musicianship and may threaten formal music education
  • Examine some existing disruptive models of music instruction and how these lead to active engagement in amateur and professional music-making.
