Lindsay Jackson ('12)
Master of Music Education, Pedagogy
Why I chose Hartt:
I came to Hartt fulltime to study with Dr. John Feierabend, preeminent Kodály educator and scholar, and I was thrilled to earn a graduate assistantship with him where I had the opportunity to assist teaching his undergraduate classes. For me, the program at Hartt was the perfect balance of theory and pedagogy. In the graduate level classes, I learned about the philosophy and theory of music education and read cutting edge scholarly research in the field. As a graduate assistant, I put these theories into practice and honed my skills as an educator. The faculty at Hartt pushed me to achieve excellence and supported me every step of the way. I have grown more as an educator and a musician in the last two years than I could have ever hoped for, and I owe it to the outstanding faculty of the Hartt School.
