Music from the Mountains and the South: Providing Live Music Arts Education from Small, Rural Universities using Internet2

Time 12/05/06 01:15PM-02:30PM

Session Abstract

In this session, we will discuss collaboration in music education in a liberal arts environment utilizing Internet2 and video conferencing technologies. Facilitated by the Associated Colleges of the South and NITLE, music faculty and students at Sewanee: The University of the South have participated via Internet2 in an interactive concert with the North Carolina School of the Arts and a flute masterclass involving Lafayette College, Wheaton College and students from the Longy School of Music in Boston. In addition, Sewanee students are engaged in collaborative saxophone lessons and music composition classes involving the University of Memphis and students at Rhodes College. During the 2006-2007 academic year students in music composition class from Sewanee and from Rhodes College (using the I2 connection at the University of Memphis) will work together on composition assignments and jointly produced student projects. The classes will have monthly joint meetings over Internet2 to share their work and use a class website to post their work and communicate between meetings. **************** Saint Francis University has begun exploration of providing live humanities and music education to remote audiences via Internet2 videoconferencing. Beginning in Spring 2006, Saint Francis University provided live interactive lectures to a national and worldwide audience free of charge via the Internet2 Commons. The impact of these sessions was immediately apparent; with very little time to promote them (two weeks) and a very small budget, each lecture garnered audiences of over 60 participants. Requests were received from areas as remote as Pakistan and Australia. Sessions presented included: ""The Didgeridoo: Exploring the Dreamtime"" with Jim Gagnon, a combined lecture/live performance featuring aboriginal Australian instruments, and ""The Universe of Song"" with Paul Purple, a ""do it yourself"" songwriting workshop. This presentation will detail the technical steps taken by Saint Francis University, a small rural private institution, to build an online music education series on Internet2. With a heavy emphasis on lessons learned , Saint Francis University staff will reveal their ""common sense"" methods of producing high-quality music education via compressed video, as well as plans for future program expansion.
