David Hebert, a PhD and Professor of Music Education, gives a lecture on Music Institutions in East Asia.


David G. Hebert, PhD is a tenured full Professor of Music Education with Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, Bergen. He is also a Professor II (Visiting Professor) with the Malmo Academy of Music, Lund University, Sweden, and frequently collaborates with the Chinese Music Research Institute of China Conservatory (Beijing) in development of the Open Global Music Academy (Huaxia Yuefu). He previously held positions with universities in the USA, Finland, Japan, Russia, Brazil, and New Zealand, and has directed research on each inhabited continent. His scholarship applies an international-comparative perspective to study pluralism, identity, and cultural relevance in music education, as well as processes by which music traditions emerge and change - both sonically and socially - as they are adopted into institutions. A frequent Keynote Speaker and Editorial Board member of several scholarly journals, his books - as author, editor, or co-editor - include Wind Bands and Cultural Identity in Japanese Schools, Patriotism and Nationalism in Music Education, Theory and Method in Historical Ethnomusicology, International Perspectives on Translation, Education and Innovation in Japanese and Korean Societies, Music Glocalization: Heritage and Innovation in a Digital Age, and Advancing Music Education in Northern Europe (in press, 2018, Routledge). He is now at work on A Global View of Music Education (co-authored with Jiaxing Xie, forthcoming, Shanghai Education Press) and a book manuscript co-authored with Will Coppola, World Music Pedagogy: Higher Education. He has published several book chapters as well as articles in over 30 different professional journals (h-index: 13), and is co-Editor of a new book series, The Lexington Series in Historical Ethnomusicology: Deep Soundings (Rowman&Littlefield). He teaches courses in music education research, world music, ensemble leadership and songwriting/arranging, and performs as a jazz trumpeter and classical bass baritone singer.
