Over the past year, a group of theorists representing both the College Music Society and the Society for Music Theory began to discuss the ideas presented in the document “Transforming Music Study from Its Foundations,” now best known as the CMS manifesto. This group of theorists will be featured in a panel at the upcoming SMT meeting this fall. A website has been developed in order to provide more information on the panel, and to enable those who will be unable to attend the meeting to ask questions of the panelists. http://manifestopanel.weebly.com/
In the interest of developing a better understanding of some of the current teaching practices of teachers of theory and ear training, a survey has been developed to be distributed nationwide and beyond. We are asking that all teachers of the musicianship core, including performers teaching core courses, share their responses. The final results will be presented at the SMT meeting. http://manifestopanel.weebly.com/survey.html
We look forward to the discussion!
