Biography

Evan Tobias is associate professor of Music Education at Arizona State University where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses and heads the Consortium for Innovation and Transformation in Music Education (CITME). He is also Director of ArtsWork: The Kax Herberger Center for Children and the Arts. Prior to his appointment at ASU, Dr. Tobias taught a technology in music education course at DePaul University and middle school instrumental and general music in New York.

Evan focuses on innovation and transformation in music education and how music learning and teaching might make a positive impact on people's lives and society. His recent research focuses on creative uses of digital media and technology, issues of justice and equity, expanding beyond traditional music curricula, and approaches to integrating popular culture and music in music classrooms. His publications range from addressing issues around digitally mediated musical engagement and learning to pedagogical approaches such as inquiry and project-based learning and facilitating hybrid music learning contexts. He is on the editorial boards of College Music Symposium: Instructional Technologies and Methodologies Component; Journal of Music, Technology, and Education; Journal of Popular Music Education; and Music Educators Journal. He is a frequent presenter at state, national, and international conferences.

Research Interests

How might musical engagement, learning, and inquiry impact communities and society?

This question animates my teaching, creative work, and research.

I enjoy collaborating with people and organizations interested in the role that musical engagement and learning can play in forwarding goals that improve people’s lives and impact communities and society, positively. I am particularly interested in projects or partnerships that leverage the power of music and musical engagement in new or emerging ways that blur boundaries, advance knowledge and fields, or open imaginative possibilities
