The purpose of this study was to examine the intergenerational interactions between preservice music teachers and senior adult musicians engaged in music teaching and learning in a New Horizons ensemble within one university’s music teacher preparation program. This intrinsic qualitative case study included written reflections and observational data of 16 current undergraduate music education students and verbatim interview transcripts of 5 current and former students serving as teaching assistants who taught and conducted their university’s New Horizons ensemble. Findings distilled from the data included (a) how younger-aged preservice music teachers responded to generational differences while learning how to interact with senior adult musicians, (b) the pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) learned and developed by participants as a result of teaching in a New Horizons ensemble, and (c) the connections made by participants teaching senior adults to their future careers as professional music educators. Future discussion and directions from this study highlight emerging connections of research between adult and community music settings and music teacher education. Implications include (a) how to create best practices so that the missions and objectives of both music teacher education programs and cooperating community adult ensembles support and enhance each other, (b) fostering outcomes that prepare music education majors for experiences in adult music education, and (c) reimagining New Horizons and music teacher education partnerships that result in more national, racial, cultural, and musical diversity and inclusion.
这项研究的目的是研究在一所大学的音乐教师准备计划中，新视野合唱团中的职前音乐教师与从事音乐教学的资深成年音乐家之间的代际互动。此内在的定性案例研究包括对16名当前音乐学本科生的书面思考和观察数据，以及5名现任和以前的学生的逐字记录笔录，这些学生曾担任过教学和指导大学的New Horizons合奏。从数据中得出的发现包括：（a）年龄较小的职前音乐教师在学习如何与成年音乐家互动时如何应对代际差异，（b）参与者在“新视野”合奏团中进行教学而学习和发展的教学内容知识（PCK），以及（c）参与者在教学高级成人方面与他们作为职业音乐教育者的未来职业之间建立了联系。这项研究的未来讨论和方向强调了成人和社区音乐环境与音乐教师教育之间研究的新兴联系。含义包括：（a）如何创建最佳做法，以使音乐教师教育计划的宗旨和目标与社区成人合作团体相互支持和增进；（b）培养成果，使音乐教育专业的学生为成人音乐教育的经历做准备， （c）重新构想新视野和音乐老师的教育合作伙伴关系，从而带来更多的民族，种族，文化，
