A conference addressing the institutions, traditions, and practices of
musical pedagogy in the Early Modern Period.  The conference will take
advantage of the perspectives of several humanistic disciplines on
educational practice of the period through formal presentations and
roundtables and through the inclusion of respondents from the field of
musicology and other disciplines.  Sessions will focus on the institutions
of musical learning, the materials of teaching and learning, the teacher
and the student, didactic repertories, and philosophies of learning.
Roundtables will allow for further discussion of the ideas presented in
formal papers, and keynote addresses (by James Haar, Jessie Ann Owens, and
Anthony Grafton) will provide perspectives to frame the larger discussion.

This conference, funded in part by a generous grant from the National
Endowment for the Humanities, will also generate a book of essays and an
ongoing on-line bibliography.  Further information, including program and
registration information can be found at the conference website:
