Pre-Tanglewood II Symposium: Music Education and Democracy

Within each event, efforts will be made to solicit input from all levels appropriate to the music learning process, especially from the grass roots, teachers, students and their parents.  Others in cultural and sociological studies, philosophy, science research (cognitive science, neurology, brain study, etc.), practitioners, other musicians, arts administrators and organizations, others in the community appropriate to the ongoing concerns of how people learn music, both informally and in schools.  A report will then be made to the Symposium, which will collate the data, listen to representatives from the various fields, and issue a report on the findings.
