Corybantic Conversations
Imagined Encounters between Dalcroze, Kodaly, Laban, Mason, Orff, Seashore, and Suzuki

Edwin E. Gordon

They are the greatest thinkers in the history of music education: Dalcroze, Laban, Mason, Kodaly, Suzuki, Orff, and Seashore. They lived and worked on different continents and in different decades and centuries, rarely if ever able to engage one another directly on the most compelling issues of how we learn and how best to teach music.

But what if they could?

In this thought-provoking book, author Edwin E. Gordon--a world leader in music education in his own right--imagines a time and place where these great thinkers meet, become friends, and grapple with each other's theories as well as the theories of today.

Topics covered include music aptitude, pedagogy, movement and dance, audiation, music achievement, tonal and rhythm essentials, the neuroscience of music, and much more.

Edwin E. Gordon brings the experience of a lifetime as a leader of the profession to this fascinating book. In many ways, Corybantic Conversations is a culmination of his own experience in music education and his deep affection for those who truly shaped the field.

Edwin E. Gordon is known throughout the world as a preeminent researcher, teacher, author, editor, and lecturer in the field of music education. He lives with his wife, Carol, in Columbia, South Carolina.

    Difficulty Level:
  • August 19, 2010 great concept, hard to read

    This book has a lot of potential, but the good information is presented only in snippets, and is overwhelmed by too-frequent mutual admiration and time-wasting of the characters, as well as information that lacks any relevance for the average teacher. If you're interested in the content, get...

    some texts that talk about these important men, and skip this book.
