Facing the Music: Shaping Music Education from a Global Perspective
English | 240 Pages | ISBN-10: 0195379764 | PDF | 3.76 MB
Facing the Music investigates the practices and ideas that have grown from some five decades of cultural diversity in music education, developments in ethnomusicology, and the rise of 'world music'. Speaking from rich, hands-on experience of more than thirty years at various levels of music education (music in schools, community organizations and pro
fessional training courses), Huib Schippers makes a powerful case for the crucial role of learning music in shaping rich and diverse musical environments for the 21st century, both in practical terms and at a conceptual level: "what we hear is the pro
duct of what we believe about music."
