  • Promoting Metron in Music Education

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Flourishing has become a popular ideal in the educational debate. Books and articles increasingly promote an education for flourishing to fulfill students’ potential and self-realization.1 As an educational aim, flourishing seems to be intrinsically desirable. Who could argue against the image of students who thrive and flourish because of their formal instruction' Additionally, theories of flourishing present a multifaceted understanding of self-realization as both fulfillment of individual potential and community-oriented way of life. Thus, an education for flourishing seems an appealing alternative to overcome subjective interests. Could flourishing guide meaningful choices in education' My skepticism rests on ... Read More

  • Conceptualizing Musical Vulnerability

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In my first teaching post, at a small independent secondary school in the English countryside, I taught a boy named Philip.1 Philip was a bright and energetic eleven-year-old who loved music. He sang in the school choir and enjoyed playing the keyboard in class, and he was excited when given the opportunity to learn the clarinet with some of his peers. Each week, Philip and two others went to their clarinet lesson. But it was not long before Philip fell behind. Try as he might, he could barely make a sound from his clarinet. His clarinet teacher was at a loss. Philip was sent to a practice room, on his own, in the hope that he might be able to progress beyond a squawk without disrupting his peers. Eventually ...

  • From French Horn to Smartphone : Leveraging Digital Technology and the
           Digital Turn

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the implementation of digital technology in schools and teacher education.1 It was applied to home-schooling procedures, and also for other unexpected applications. For example, for the first time entrance auditions to the Music Academy Freiburg (Germany) were performed at distant locations in real time for foreign Asian students who could not personally travel to Freiburg; two Yamaha Disklavier grand pianos that were digitally connected and remote-controlled were employed for the auditions, with one situated in China or Japan with a corresponding grand piano in Freiburg where the selection committee evaluated the performance from a distance of over eight ...

  • Mapping the Boundaries of Musical Culture in the International
           Baccalaureate High School Curriculum

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Music curricula in schools located in the United States have historically focused on a limited number of musical styles to the exclusion of many others.1 Of the styles represented in the curricula, the Euro-American high art music canon has traditionally occupied a privileged position as the pinnacle of human musical expression.2 Since the 1970s, the portrayal of different cultures in U.S. school music curricula has become both more prevalent and less overtly hierarchical. 3 In large part, this diversification of the subject matter stemmed from the socio-political changes and new sensibilities about racial and ethnic difference that the Civil Rights movement awakened. Within the music education realm, the ... Read More

  • The Politics of Memory in Music Education: (Re)imagining Collective
           Futures in Pluralist Societies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When music is used in school events or functions, it is often said to be there either because “it has always been there” or because someone in the school community selected it. Usually, it would not be there because the school community has critically reflected on the music and its role in the formation of the school and its educational culture or in the wider society, nor would it be there as a result of negotiation between various stakeholders. This paper suggests that the concept of a collective or social memory is an important and neglected perspective for critically reflecting on the role of music in schools. This neglect is striking when it is considered that memory has become a pervasive motif in ... Read More

  • Class, Control and Classical Music by Anna Bull (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Anna Bull makes a bold claim for her book, Class, Control and Classical Music. It is, she argues, the first book “to comprehensively analyze the culture of classical music practice in relation to economic inequalities in the UK.”1 According to Bull, classical music plays a part both in causing and perpetuating the gap between the rich and the poor, the dominant and dominated members of society. The relationship between classical music and inequality, Bull argues, is fundamentally tied to the U.K’s social class system in which “middleclass identity and culture is valued more than working-class … identit[y] across a range of social institutions.”2 Classical music, Bull maintains, plays a part in creating a ...

  • Editorial

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It is sometimes surprising when miscellaneous articles on a variety of specific subjects and assigned to an issue in order of their acceptance turn out to have a compelling and common theme. As editors, we sometimes have the sense of a zeitgeist, of a collective unconscious that bubbles up in the topics that compel our authors to write. As this issue goes to press, we are in a global pandemic that we hope will soon abate. We face an array of political, social, racial, ethnic, and economic conflicts and challenges that contribute to unsettlement and even despair for our collective well-being and the welfare of our planet. We are surrounded by a mediated environment in which expertise and truth are too often ... Read More
