August means back to school. Back to rehearsals, and back to listening to podcasts. This is always the tourist season here at Choralosophy as listeners really ramp up! August 2023 has set a show record for downloads in a month, so if you have missed any, this is your chance to catch up!
Professor Kenneth Bozeman really blew people’s minds with a lesson on Vocal Acoustics in a way that any teacher of singing would find practical and also fascinating. Joshua Mazur and I had a great conversation about the ways in which we use the word “talent” in music education and in society in less than productive ways. I also had David Simmons Woods come to the home studio to discuss something we both see as a gaping hole in recent choral repertoire celebrations. Renaissance Polyphony.
Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman is one of the bigger podcast hosts out there, and is a well known author, researcher and Psychologist. He is also a kid who was saved from the doldrums of his early education by his choir class, and went on to become a preeminent expert in Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs. He joins us on Choralosophy to tell his story, as well as to help us shed “the cult of Maslow.”
Most recently I spoke with GRAMMY Music Educator of the Year Stephen T. Cox about his viral post that asked, “Who is better? Taylor Swift, or Beethoven?” We also asked, “Is music education for all realistic?”
