Minority Students and Faculty in Higher Music Education
Clements, Allen
Music Educators Journal, v95 n3 p53-56 2009
This article offers a brief summary of the current minority situation in university and college music programs in the United States. Research in this area has concentrated to varying degrees on specific subsets of the minority population (e.g., African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asians) as well as on minorities in a more general sense. It has also focused on both minority music students and minority music faculty. One of the leaders in producing such research has been the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM), the national accrediting agency for college music programs in the United States. Several topics have emerged as central themes in minority music education research over the past twenty years. Three of these are "recruitment" (undergraduate, graduate, and faculty/administration), "access", and "alternative curricula/outreach programs." (Contains 20 notes.)
