2021 Seminars in Music Education: Amateurism, Listening & Creativity in Music Classrooms

John Kratus has long pushed music education forward, most notably through his many articles. Among the most famous of these is his Music Educators Journal article, “Music Education at the Tipping Point.” This article is the most downloaded music education article in history. The GSU seminar will center on several of Kratus’s articles, with substantial opportunity for open discussion . . . valuable for music teachers, college faculty, students, and all interested in the purposes of music education.
