Summary

Amid enormous changes in higher education, audience and music listener preferences, and the relevant career marketplace, music faculty are increasingly aware of the need to reimagine classical music performance training for current and future students. But how can faculty and administrators, under urgent pressure to act, be certain that their changes are effective, strategic, and beneficial for students and institutions? In this book, Michael Stepniak and Peter Sirotin address these questions with perspectives rooted in extensive experience as music educators and performers. Building on a multidimensional analysis of core issues, and employing a healthy skepticism of arguments for and against radical change, they illuminate areas of unavoidable challenge as well as areas of possibility and hope. An essential read for education leaders contemplating how classical music can continue to thrive within American higher education.
