Abstract and Keywords

The Instrumental Music Teacher Educators (IMTE) is an independent, grass-roots, collaborative group of collegiate music teacher educators and scholars who are committed to the advancement of instrumental music education in K–12 and university settings. This chapter describes the origins and evolution of the IMTE Colloquium for Teachers of Instrumental Methods over the first 12 years of its existence. Through seven biennial colloquia and related activities, IMTE has evolved into a community of practice where individuals come together to learn from each other, developing their personal and collective understanding about traditional and emerging topics through cooperative interactions that have resulted in ongoing professional and personal relationships.
