This article examines music education in our present world, which is characterized as postperformance. The postperformance world is one where music is often experienced through recordings rather than live performances; where the music produced in a studio result in recordings that may be impossible to perform live due to sampling or synthesis; and where the prevalence of recordings radically changes the way we hear. The study discusses the awareness of media in the 1930; mass media as celebration in the 1960s; new media as transformative in the 1990s; and resituating music education in the postperformance world.
