What is Early Music?

Educators teach others about early music, whether it be in a formal setting like a school or university, or informally through lectures and workshops. Early music is a field that is constantly evolving as new research is uncovered and new technologies are developed. This means that there are always new opportunities for those who are interested in this type of music.
