Today on TAP, I’m talking with Dr. Cynthia Crump Taggart all about Music Learning Theory. MLT is an approach that I’m not as familiar with as others, and to be blunt, one that I still have a lot of questions about. This conversation with Dr. Taggart shed a lot of light on the philosophical underpinnings of Music Learning Theory, and, once again, how there are many more similarities to other pedagogical approaches than what I may have originally thought.

Cynthia Taggart is professor of music education at the Michigan State University College of Music. She received her B.M. and M.M. in Music Education from University of Michigan and her Ph.D. in Music Education from Temple University. In addition to being a faculty member, she is immediate past president of the College Music Society. Taggart directs and teaches in the Early Childhood Music Program of the MSU Community Music School. She received the prestigious MSU Teacher-Scholar award. Prior to teaching at MSU, she taught for four years at Case Western Reserve University, where she won the Undergraduate Teaching Excellence Award for the Humanities and Social Sciences. She also has extensive elementary and preschool teaching experience in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
