Graduate Music Education
Phillips, Kenneth H.
Research and Issues in Music Education, v6 n1 Sep 2008
This essay on graduate music education is in response to an article by David Hebert on challenges and solutions in online music teacher education that appeared in the online journal, "Research and Issues in Music Education," 5(1). The author found the article stimulating because so little has been written on the topic of music teacher education at the graduate level. It appears that graduate music education in institutions of higher learning is locked into traditions that online programs are ready to challenge. In this essay the author considers this challenge from a traditionalist viewpoint to determine if an online approach is a feasible option to music education at the doctorate and master's levels. Specifically, the author seeks to determine what the nature of graduate degrees in music education are or should be, if online and traditional curricula are in agreement in fulfilling these requirements, and if some variant or compromise is appropriate in developing music teachers at the graduate level.
