Douglas Jurs | Expanding the Frame: Inclusive Repertoire Possibilities for Teachers
As piano teachers, the pieces we assign to our students say a lot about our values. We assign Beethoven and Debussy and Bach because we believe their music is beautiful and brings us and our students closer to something just and true. But is there more we can do as teachers to promote values of racial justice and inclusion? Do we need to default to the usual Clementi Sonatina or Gershwin Prelude when there might be other options of equal pedagogical value that simultaneously expand classical music’s typically white male frame? This webinar offers practical suggestions for fun repertoire alternatives that give voice to a diversity of musical perspectives from around the world. Intermediate and intermediate-advanced repertoire will be emphasized, and pieces presented will be linked to specific pedagogical concepts and analogous warhorses of the pedagogical literature.
