DescriptionThis panel discussion is about how music educators can teach about and infuse more music by women in their own curriculum. Some of the topics that were discussed include how society is influenced by images of women (Mildred Alpert), how to add materials about women composers to elementary and secondary school libraries (Carolynn A. Lindeman), the lack of women artists in art books (B. P. Roth), questions about teacher training programs, and assigning instruments unusually (girls: tubas and boys: clarinets, for example) in a middle school band in New Jersey (Sandy Dackow).
