Center for Critical Pedagogy

The mission of the Westminster Center for Critical Pedagogy is to foster collaboration between student and teacher to nurture and empower the musician within. It is the nexus for music teaching and learning at Westminster Choir College. Teachers at the Center embrace Critical Pedagogy, recognizing that students come to classes, ensembles and applied studies with information gleaned from their own life experiences. Critical pedagogues use that knowledge as a bridge to new learning. This results in a change of perception for students and their teachers and adds value to their lives. The Center promotes the importance of adapting instruction to accommodate individual learning styles and encourages students to construct and connect meaning for themselves. Such experiences yield transformation. The Westminster Center for Critical Pedagogy acknowledges the political nature of the educational process and works against maintaining a status quo that reproduces a cycle of complacency.
