Rural and Urban

Posted on Posted in Rural Music Education

I notice Rural and Urban Music Education being grouped together at multiple conferences along with the assertion that they share a lot of the same challenges. Other than higher levels of poverty than suburban areas, seek I’m not sure I would agree that there are significant similarities. Does it really benefit rural music students and teachers to have their unique concerns grouped with urban concerns? Given the propensity of music education researchers to be interested in urban issues due to the typical location of large research universities in large cities, pharm maybe grouping urban with rural serves to mask the needs of the latter.
