Quo Vadis Pop Teaching? - A journalistic survey among teachers - Prof. Jono Podmore

Prof. Jono Podmore: „Working at a Musikhochschule is a little like working at a museum“

Not affected by the Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz – and yet exposed to similar frustration and precariousness – are the freelance lecturers at German universities and colleges. Unlike their permanent colleagues, they are in principle allowed to continue teaching for life, as long as they can afford it in view of rather mediocre hourly rates, (often) no reimbursement of travel expenses, and (mostly) unpaid preparation and follow-up time.


I am very pleased that Prof. Jono Podmore, known to some Kaput readers by his stage name Kumo, has taken the time to answer the questionnaire.
Prof. Jono Podmore is a professor of popular music at the Cologne University of Music and Dance. Since the 1980s, he has contributed as composer, producer, sound engineer and string arranger for Bomb The Bass, The Shamen and Jamiroquai, among others.
