Music, Education, and Diversity: Bridging Cultures and Communities - Patricia Shehan Campbell

Music, Education, and Diversity: Bridging Cultures and Communities


Music is a powerful means for educating citizens in a multicultural society and meeting many challenges shared by teachers across all subjects and grade levels. By celebrating heritage and promoting intercultural understandings, music can break down barriers among various ethnic, racial, cultural, and language groups within elementary and secondary schools.

This book provides important insights for educators in music, the arts, and other subjects on the role that music can play in the curriculum as a powerful bridge to cultural understanding. The author documents key ideas and practices that have influenced current music education, particularly through efforts of ethnomusicologists in collaboration with educators, and examines some of the promises and pitfalls in shaping multicultural education through music. The text highlights World MusicPedagogy as a gateway to studying other cultures as well as the importance of including local music and musicians in the classroom.

Book Features:

  • Chronicles the historical movements and contemporary issues that relate to music education, ethnomusicology, and cultural diversity.
  • Offers recommendations for the integration of music into specific classes, as well as throughout school culture.
  • Examines performance, composition, and listening analysis of art (folk/traditional and popular) as avenues for understanding local and global communities.
  • Documents music's potential to advance dimensions of multicultural education, such as the knowledge-construction process, prejudice reduction, and an equity pedagogy.
