Learning, Teaching, and Musical Identity

Voices across Cultures

Musical identity raises complex, multifarious, and fascinating questions. Discussions in this new study consider how individuals construct their musical identities in relation to their experiences of formal and informal music teaching and learning. Each chapter features a different case study situated in a specific national or local socio-musical context, spanning 20 regions across the world. Subjects range from Ghanaian or Balinese villagers, festival-goers in Lapland, and children in a South African township to North American and British students, adults and children in a Cretan brass band, and Gujerati barbers in the Indian diaspora.

Reviews

"Reknowned editor and author Lucy Green (Univ. of London Institute of Education, UK) has collected 20 case studies about identity. Not only are the essays about a variety of musical cultural identities, they are written by researchers and educators from around the world. Green includes an ethnomusicologist, a soloist, a professor of social information, musicologists, and researchers of culture and identity. This is a work of theme and variations: each essay reviews investigative research, revealing musicians from a particular culture and the issues facing the newer generation. Most essays are current, but Green does include Roe-Min Kok's iconic 'Music for a Postcolonial Child: Theorizing Malaysian Memories' (from Musical Childhoods and the Cultures of Youth, ed. by Kok and Susan Boynton, 2006). Green allows readers to journey to an isolated culture, for example, Lapland, or to a cyberspace island, and contemplate their own musical identity as they work out their educational philosophy. Valuable for music educators and ethnomusicologists. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals. — Choice"—V. S. Xenakis, formerly, State University of New York College at Cortland, February

"Green invites twenty authors from all corners of the globe to contribute evidence based research to this book . . . From these fascinating, highly readable accounts, Green pulls out some emerging issues which have important messages for music educators. 7/22/11"—Teaching Music

"[T]his collection is a very worthy addition to the growing literature on global music education. It will be useful as both a scholarly and pedagogical resource, and will likely inspire much future work in this still nascent but vibrant field."—Popular Music

"Green allows readers to journey to an isolated culture, for example, Lapland, or to a cyberspace island, and contemplate their own musical identity as they work out their educational philsoophy. . . . Highly recommended."—Choice

"A truly exciting opportunity for music education . . . which draws from international sources and focuses on identity in music learning, an issue that has just begun to emerge in the literature of the field."—Jackie Wiggins, Oakland University
