Creating an Arts Spirit

I was only there to video the workshop, but I found myself entranced by Bill Rowell’s opening remarks and by the other speakers during the day. I recommend this video to anyone interested in any kind of teaching, music or otherwise.

I have been reflecting on the portion of the talk where Rowell referenced William Schuman and I wondered how we might apply that to musicologists. Are we musicians first, and teachers and historians second? Is it necessary in our field? Why is teaching so rarely discussed in our dozens of graduate-level musicology courses, when that is ultimately what most of us will do?
