The participatory field as an alternative to musical specialization [CIC Nebraska talk]

SONY DSCI presented a talk on Tom Turino’s participatory music field and its potential for music education at the University of Nebraska’s CIC Music Education Conference on November 17, 2013. The paper explores the example of the Homebrew Ukulele Union to illustrate how the participatory field allows simultaneous participation across the age and ability spectrum, with each participant’s contributions equally valued.

I have uploaded the paper, with additional notes and references, to IDEALS: http://hdl.handle.net/2142/45872
