HPU assistant professor of music presents research in Mexico
BROWNWOOD – September 6, 2011 – Lance Beaumont, HPU assistant professor of music, recently returned from presenting research on teaching guitar and development of curriculum for teaching the guitar at the International Society for Music Education Regional conference held in Tabasco, Mexico.
The conference was comprised of more than 300 music educators from North and South America, with South America having the largest number of delegates.
“I met many colleagues who challenged me in the way that I think about music education,” Beaumont said. “This experience made me aware not only of research emerging outside of North America but also of the need for better collaboration between scholars from different music education traditions and countries, particularly with our neighbors to the south.”
