Research Seminar Announcement
An exploration of music teacher socialization in the United States

All are welcome
In this paper, I explore philosophically the possibility of a connection between music teacher socialization and the work of Joseph Campbell (1949) in comparative mythology. Campbell's "hero's journey," interpreted and applied by screenwriter Christopher Vogler (2007), provides a way of viewing the life of the apprentice music teacher as a process of ritual, following the theme of separation—initiation—return, where the protagonist leaves the ordinary world to enter a special world where adventure happens, followed by a return to the ordinary world in an altered—changed—state. This formulation is proposed to be akin to the struggles of the apprentice music teacher. I use illustrations of music teaching and learning experiences within the context of United States teacher education to illustrate the argument.
