• About the Center for Music-In-Education •
The Center for Music-In-Education (CMIE) supports New England Conservatory’s core mission to prepare students as complete “artist-teacher-scholars” by enlisting studio, theory, history, technology, and music education faculty to prepare NEC students not only as better musicians, but as more effective teachers and missionaries for music in a wide range of educational contexts — skills that are now a part of virtually every musician’s career in music. Funded in part by federal grants from the Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education (FIPSE) and the National Endowment for the Arts, and generous gifts from the Popplestone Foundation, the Center for Music-In-Education publishes the Journal for Music-In-Education, formerly known as the Journal for Learning Through Music. The CMIE also houses the Research Center for Learning Through Music, whose primary duty is as research agency for the Music-in-Education National Consortium (MIENC).
The CMIE is led by Larry Scripp (Theory and Music-in-Education faculty, NEC; Professor, Harvard Graduate School of Education), and is staffed by Randy Wong, Fred Sienkiewicz, Helen Liu, Kristen Dirmeier, Patrick Keppel, and MIE Research Fellows Brynn Rector, Jessica Reed, and Anthony Green.
