In Search of Music Education

by Estelle R. Jorgensen

In Search of Music Education Synopsis

What is music education, and what ought it to be? By challenging narrow and inadequate conceptions of the field, Estelle Jorgensen raises the possibility of alternative views that can dignify the teacher's task, enrich and enliven the profession, and validate an exciting range of additional ways in which music education can be undertaken in the contemporary world. One of the most respected leaders in music education, Jorgensen emphasizes world music and ethnomusicology as equal partners alongside the more conventional sounds and styles that have dominated the classroom. Exemplifying sound scholarship, thorough research, and compelling argument, In Search of Music Education will be especially welcome wherever teachers strive to deal with requirements for responsible music education.

In Search of Music Education Press Reviews

If ... you are a music educator with an interest in rethinking music education within a broad philosophical perspective, one that seeks to hold in tension and reconcile the ambiguities and conflicts within the field, then you will be delighted. -- Deanne Bogdan, Philosophy of Music Education Review
