About this Event

Dear friends and colleagues,

We cordially invite you to attend our fourth event of the 2021-22 Music Education Colloquium Series: "When Youth Musicking is Play," a guest talk by Professor Leslie Stewart Rose from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE).

About the talk

Prof. Leslie Stewart Rose will share insights from her quest to understand why music is so important to youth. Drawing on the sophisticated ways that youth describe their musicking, she will explain her understanding of how play-based musicking contributes to learning and wellbeing. Finally, within the context of today’s collapsing music education programs in Ontario, she will raise important implications for educators—especially classroom music educators.
