Music Education Program Presents at Conference

An important element in teacher preparation involves experiential learning. This is the basis for the latest presentation by the GMU music education department at the Society for Music Teacher Education (SMTE) symposium held in Greensboro, North Carolina. Students entering the music education program at Mason are involved in Lab Ensembles as a part of their techniques courses (class woodwinds, class brass, class voice, etc.), and music methods courses (Instrumental Methods, Choral Methods, etc.). According to Brian Wuttke, Director of Music Education, "the rationale for incorporating lab ensembles into the curriculum arises out of the need to provide authentic live-on-the-podium experience prior to student teaching. Our session hopes to share our story with colleagues who might be interested in implementing student-led lab ensembles in their programs." Co-presenters for this session include: F. Wayne Taylor, Timothy Smith, and Margaret Woods.
