Seminar in State Music Supervision. Final Report.
Phelps, Roger P.
Thirty-two states, plus Guam, were represented at the Seminar in State Music Supervision, held Jan. 24 through 26 at New York University. Position papers were presented on state arts councils movements, the relationship between state music supervisors and chief state school officers, computer applications to music education, and general factors of Title I of ESEA. Other papers dealt with the responsibilities of state music supervisors, the changing patterns and concepts of certification, and the effect of mass media on culture. Reports on Title I and Title III ESEA music projects were given. Discussions were held on (1) the manner in which changing philosophies of state departments of education affect the responsibilities of their personnel, (2) the increasing attention being paid to required secondary school music, and (3) the advancement of computer science technology over the musician's present ability to use it efficiently. All of these factors are related to the dichotomy between the creative artist and the teacher, the need for more state education department music personnel, and the trend toward having music taught by specialists.
