Schoenberg’s American Teaching Career

Schoenberg’s American Teaching Career

(p.201) 6 Schoenberg’s American Teaching Career
Schoenberg’s New World

Sabine Feisst

Oxford University Press

Chapter 6 sheds light on Schoenberg’s American teaching career: his students at Boston’s Malkin Conservatory, the University of Southern California, and University of California, Los Angeles; and his private students in Boston, New York, Chautauqua, and California, including John Cage, Patricia Carpenter, Lou Harrison, Earl Kim, Oscar Levant, Dika Newlin, and Leonard Stein. Schoenberg’s teaching personality, philosophy, subjects, and methods are also explored. Schoenberg reached beyond his academic appointments with his textbooks, his advice to academic music educators across the country, and his participation in local and national music education conferences. This chapter challenges the Eurocentric cliché that Schoenberg threw pearls before swine and the Anglocentric supposition that his teaching impeded the free development of American composers.
