The Mountain Lake Reader



Growing out of biennial music teacher education colloquia and the intermittent conversations connecting them, The Mountain Lake Reader was dedicated to a continuing conversation about matters important in the study and practice of music teaching. The colloquia were and are characterized by a delightful mixture of intensity, playfulness, confusion, wonder, irreverence and complexity; throughout, however, a serious commitment to a better understanding of and a subsequent improvement of our work in ways democratic was evident. The Reader was an attempt to capture the spirit and momentum of these gatherings within the covers of a journal.
