dc.description.abstract'Burnout' and praxis shock are causing music teachers to leave the profession early. Much research suggests that this is a reflection on the quality of teacher education programs. Interviews with teachers in their first four years in the secondary music classroom reveal how they view their preservice preparation, and therefore provide an insight into how preservice teacher education might be effectively reconceptualised. This paper explores the relationship between Zeichner and Liston's (1990) teacher education 'traditions' and early-career music teachers' perceptions of an 'ideal' teacher education course. Analyses of interviews with 15 early-career secondary classroom music teachers suggest the emergence of a common understanding regarding the design of effective music teacher education programs. Rather than representing any of Zeichner and Liston's four traditions in particular, early-career music teachers speak of a music teacher education approach that incorporates all of the traditions in an integrated way. This understanding of an 'ideal' teacher education course should be considered when designing or reconceptualising teacher education courses in order to provide improved opportunities for future music teachers.
