AMS Teaching Award

The AMS Teaching Award will honor an exceptional pedagogical resource for musicology by an AMS member or a citizen or permanent resident of Canada or the United States published during the previous two years (2018 and 2019). Publication year may refer to the copyright year as found on the copyright page of the book or journal; online and non-traditional sources must make clear the year of publication. By “resource” is meant a published article, book (including textbook), digital medium, online material, other scholarly endeavor, or non-traditional source (e.g. white paper, curriculum, blog, etc.). This resource should best exemplify the highest qualities of originality, theory, application, and communication for teaching and pedagogy in any of the various fields of music as a branch of learning and scholarship.

The committee, consisting of three scholars, will choose a single winner from among all the candidates nominated. The winner receives a monetary prize and a certificate, conferred at the Annual Business Meeting and Awards Presentation of the Society by the chair of the committee. An individual may receive the award only once.

Anyone may submit a nomination. Nominations, including self-nominations, must be submitted by 1 May 2020. Additionally, the award committee may solicit the curriculum vitae of each nominee.
