Swingin' to the Beat of Our Own Drum: Developing an Effective Jazz History Pedagogy

Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this report is to provide insight on how and why we should include more cultural and historical context in a collegiate jazz education. The entry of jazz into academia raises a philosophical dilemma, as it represents an intersection of two contrasting cultures with different governing principles and cultural aesthetics. With the inclusion of jazz into academic institutions, it is possible that the cultural context and integrity of jazz has been marginalized. My aim for this report is to offer general recommendations to the field of jazz pedagogy with the ultimate purpose of better serving the music and the musicians who study it.
