CMS Emerging Fields in Music

Series Editor:

The CMS Emerging Fields in Music series consists of concise monographs that help the profession reimagine how we must prepare twenty-first century musicians. Shifting cultural landscapes, emerging technologies, and a changing profession in and out of the academy demand that we reexamine our relationships with audiences, leverage our art to strengthen the communities in which we live and work, equip our students to think and act as artist-entrepreneurs, explore the limitless (and sometimes limiting) role technology plays in the life of a musician, revisit our very assumptions about what artistic excellence means and how personal creativity must be repositioned at the center of this definition, and share best practices and our own stories of successes and failures when leading institutional change.

These short-form books can be either single-authored works, or contributed volumes comprised of three or four essays on related topics. The books should prove useful for emerging musicians inventing the future they hope to inhabit, faculty rethinking the courses they teach and how they teach them, and administrators guiding curricular innovation and rebranding institutional identity.
