Winds of Change: A Colloquium in Music Education (College Park, Maryland, April 3, 1993). State of the Arts Series No. 1.
Fowler, Charles; Elliott, David J.
The volume contains papers presented at "Winds of Change: A Colloquium in Music Education," and examines the current need for reform in music education. Assessments of music's failure to achieve central curricular status, and outline scenarios for reform and improved status for music education are presented. The reform plans emphasize the value of music in human development and thus in education. Challenges are raised seeking a clarification of what music is and why it matters. There exists a movement toward humanistic focus for music in education and instruction that is inspired and guided by teachers of comprehensive musicianship. The document concludes with a program of the Colloquium. (FB)
