Title Facing the Music: Shaping music education from a global perspective
Author Schippers, Huib
Year Published 2009
Place of publication United States
Publisher Oxford University Press
Abstract Facing the Music makes a powerful case for the crucial role of world music in shaping rich and diverse learning environments for the 21st century. Author Huib Schippers investigates practices and ideas that have grown from the rise of 'world music', developments in ethnomusicology, and a growing awareness of the need for cultural diversity in music education over the past five decades. Based on over thirty years of hands-on experience at various levels of music education, Schippers addresses his audience both in practical terms and at a conceptual level, convincingly demonstrating that “to a large extent, what we hear, learn and teach is the product of what we believe about music.”
