The John J. Cali School of Music will host a conference, Giving Voice to Democracy in Music Education from June 20 - 22, 2014.
This conference will present ideas and forward thinking practice about developing young musicians as active participants in a democratic society. Featured keynote speakers will be Dr. David Elliot, celebrated author of Music Matters and Dr. Nicholas Michelli, international spokesperson for education as democratic practice. As music educators we have an obligation to teach not only musicianship but also to prepare students for active participation in an evolving society. This conference will explore how we think about these issues and translate them into meaningful music teaching practices.
Please hold the dates! See the Cali School website for information and registration.
