The Future of Music Education

Interested in the future of music education? Should it be more entrepreneurial? What kind of leadership is required?

Learn more about the future of music education by attending the Round Top Round Table in Round Top Texas, August 11-15, 2008.

This five-day seminar is most applicable for those considering careers as deans and directors of one of the nation’s 600 collegiate music schools. If you are a current dean and director, senior faculty or a graduate student interested in serving in a future role as a leader, I would strongly encourage you to attend. I myself will be there for the first two days to hear Don Randel, President of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and Larry Faulkner, President of The Houston Endowment speak; as both of these foundations could hold a major role in reshaping the way all foundations support institutions of higher learning in the arts.

Topics for this workshop include:
Institutional identity, faculty recruitment and development, fundraising, student recruitment, broadening of social demand for the arts, development and entrepreneurial perspective among musicians.

This workshop was designed by Robert Freeman, Susan Menefe Ragan Regents Professor and Director; Bryce Jordan Arts Entrepreneurship Incubator; former dean of the College of Fine Arts, Univ. of Texas at Austin; former president of the New England Conservatory, Boston, MA; former director of The Eastman School of Music, Rochester, NY.

It is being funded by The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation

Sign up before August 1st to attend the Round Top Round Table Registration is affordable and includes meals and housing.
