Boston University College of Fine Arts Announces the Release Of “Tanglewood II: Summoning the Future of Music Education”
School of Music Professor André de Quadros and Visiting Scholar Anthony Palmer collaborate on new book to guide the future of music learning and teaching, based on 2007 Symposium Tanglewood II — Charting the Future
Boston, MA – Boston University College of Fine Arts (CFA) congratulates School of Music Professor André de Quadros and Visiting Scholar Anthony J. Palmer on the release of Tanglewood II: Summoning the Future of Music Education.
Based on eight events preceding the 2007 Symposium Tanglewood II — Charting the Future, Professor de Quadros and Palmer, among other leaders in music education, address eight major areas of music learning and teaching in Tanglewood II: Summoning the Future of Music Education.
“The 21st century calls for a dynamic reconsideration of all educational practice,” says André de Quadros, Co-Editor and School of Music Professor at the College of Fine Arts at Boston University. “The book begins to raise some of those critical questions through the writings of some of the nation’s leading educators. It is, therefore, a vital part of the continuing Tanglewood legacy that BU has created since 1967.”
Applicable to all levels of education — preK–12, as well as undergraduate and graduate college and university courses — topics include the value of music in education and society; music learning in a democratic context; and transcending boundaries in music education.
“The 1967 Tanglewood Symposium was a watershed event in the history of music education, and had effects beyond our borders,” says Anthony Palmer, Co-Editor and Visiting Scholar at the College of Fine Arts at Boston University. “We are confident that Tanglewood II will also have an impact across the worldwide profession. The book carries a message of reevaluation and renewal of music leanring and teaching so sorely needed at this time of external pressures on music programs in schools.”
