John Kinyon Music Education Resource Room
The focal area in the Wickstrom Music Education Center is the John Kinyon Music Education Resource Room (“A gift of John Kinyon ’49”). While the main music library at Ithaca College hosts an entire floor of extensive holdings for music majors, the Kinyon Resource Room is an important additional resource. This resource room provides many materials for teaching, including one of the country’s most complete educational collections of general music basal series and band, jazz, and string method books. In addition, storybooks, maps, composer posters, music scores, choral octavos, and solo and chamber music are available, and the area also holds a full array of multicultural, multimedia, and technology-based pedagogical materials to aid students in their teaching. As part of this collection, sample videos, portfolios, and pedagogical materials have been archived from 1992 to the present for use by today’s students. Most of the materials can be checked out for student and faculty use.
