Abstract and Keywords

This article examines music education in our present world, which is characterized as postperformance. The postperformance world is one where music is often experienced through recordings rather than live performances; where the music produced in a studio result in recordings that may be impossible to perform live due to sampling or synthesis; and where the prevalence of recordings radically changes the way we hear. The study discusses the awareness of media in the 1930; mass media as celebration in the 1960s; new media as transformative in the 1990s; and resituating music education in the postperformance world.

Keywords: music education, mass media, postperformance
