About this product
- DescriptionIn a delightfully self-conscious philosophical mash-up, Randall Everett Allsup provides alternatives for the traditional master-apprentice teaching model that has characterized music education. By providing examples across the arts and humanities, Allsup 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-directed craft and moves into much larger and more complicated fields of exploration. Through vivid stories and evocative prose, Randall Everett Allsup advocates for an open, quest-driven teaching model that has repercussions for music education and the humanities more generally.
- Author BiographyRandall Everett Allsup is Associate Professor and Coordinator of Music Education at Teachers College Columbia University. He is past chair of the International Society for the Philosophy of Music Education (ISPME) and the Philosophy Special Research Interest Group (SRIG) of the Music Education Research Council.
