Collegiate Connections: Facilitating Student Music Composition
Riley, Patricia
Music Educators Journal, v100 n3 p22-23 Mar 2014
In 1989, Bennett Reimer wrote that there are three ways through which people can experience music: performing, listening, and composing. Similarly, in the current National Standards document, MENC [now the National Association for Music Education (NAfME)] identifies performing, creating, and responding to music as the "fundamental music processes in which humans engage." The soon to-be-released revised National Music Standards also focus on creating, performing, and responding as the three main areas to be addressed. Now in her twelfth year as a music education professor, Patricia Riley enthusiastically shares with her preservice music teachers a number of strategies for including composition in their curricula once they have graduated and are out in the field. In this installment of "Collegiate Connections," she shares a few of these ideas.
