Mission Statement:

The goal of the Consortium for Innovation and Transformation in Music Education (CITME) is to catalyze, foster, and support innovation and transformation across varied music teaching and learning contexts. The CITME supports music educators and develops curricular and pedagogical frameworks to address contemporary technologies, new and emerging forms of musical engagement, and popular culture through use-inspired research, collaborative projects, education, and transdisciplinary partnerships.

The Consortium for Innovation and Transformation in Music Education focuses on:

Developing pedagogical approaches for using new/emerging instruments and electronic devices in music programs

Developing and expanding curricular offerings to address the many ways people engage with music through new technologies and popular culture phenomena

Designing standards-based lesson units incorporating popular culture and music drawing on contemporary research and thinking in music education

Preparing future music educators to integrate digital technologies and popular culture in their classrooms and ensembles

Assisting practicing music educators in integrating digital technologies and popular culture into their existing programs as well as expanding their curricular offerings

Consulting school districts in adapting and expanding their music programs to address contemporary and emerging forms of musical practices and understanding

At the core of the consortium’s work is providing music educators and others with sound pedagogical and curricular applications of contemporary technologies and forms of musical engagement based in research and real life projects
