I have a chapter in the just released book, The place of music in the 21st Century: A global perspective. The one hundred-eleventh NSSE yearbook. My chapter, “Ubiquitous Music Learning in a Postperoformance World” looks how peopled changed and were changed by two technological innovations: sound recording in the late 19th century, and digital media in the late 20th century. I try to provide some avenues by which the music education profession can critically engage with the profound changes in music, musician, and audience.
Congrats to Cathy Benedict and Patrick Schmidt for pulling all this together, and I hope the volume promotes some rich discussion.
