MMED 605 Historical and Philosophical Foundations In Music Education



3 credits 45.0 hours
600 level graduate course

This is an intensive course of study of the historical and philosophical foundations of music education. This course will encapsulate both the history of music education in the United States from the Colonial period to modern times, and a philosophical emphasis on twentieth and twenty-first century thought and movements in American music education. These movements and philosophies will be analyzed in terms of their impact and effectiveness and why some have succeeded where others failed. An analysis and synthesis of ideas and events will reveal historical cycles, socio-political ramifications, and periodic reintroduction/revision of previous approaches. Current trends in American music education will be analyzed from both historical and philosophical perspectives, while making evident to learners the connections of philosophical theories and theorists, and their significance through the history of music education.
