Description/Abstract: Remixing the Classroom: Toward an Open Philosophy of Music Education, with Randall Allsup & Guests, Tuesday, 10/11, 5-7pm

Join Professor Randall Allsup and Teachers College music students in a performance-based discussion of Remixing the Classroom: Toward an Open Philosophy of Music Education (Indiana University Press, 2016).

"In a delightfully self-conscious philosophical "mashup," Randall provides alternatives for the traditional master-apprentice teaching model that has characterized music education for centuries. By providing examples across the arts and humanities, Randall promotes a vision of education that is open, changing,and adventurous at heart. He contends that the imperative of growth at the core of all teaching and learning relationships is made richer, though less certain, when it is fused with a student's self-initiated quest. In this way, the formal study of music turns from an education in teacher-centered craft and moves into larger and more complicated fields of exploration. Through vivid stories and evocative prose, Randall advocates for an open, quest-driven teaching model that has repercussions for music education and the humanities more generally."
