Abstract and Keywords

This chapter draws upon the work of Gena Greher and Jay Dorfman, teacher educators working in Massachusetts, to compare and contrast the music initial teacher education in the United States with the system in England. This includes discussion of the structure of the teacher education programs, the impact of the differing school curricula on teacher education in each country, novice teachers’ opportunities for using technology when on school placements, and continuing professional development for practicing schoolteachers. The chapter also reflects on the English system of ITE for secondary music teachers presented by Jonathan Savage in chapter 52, raising issues related to gender, and new forms of initial teacher education that have emerged of late.

Keywords: music technologies, initial teacher education, pre-service teachers, teacher educator, school experience, school-based routes, professional development, gender issues
