Values and Music Education

What values should form the foundation of music education? And once we decide on those values, how do we ensure we are acting on them?

In Values and Music Education, esteemed author Estelle R. Jorgensen explores how values apply to the practice of music education. We may declare values, but they can be hard to see in action. Jorgensen examines nine quartets of related values and offers readers a roadmap for thinking constructively and critically about the values they hold. In doing so, she takes a broad view of both music and education while drawing on a wide sweep of multidisciplinary literature. Not only does Jorgensen demonstrate an analytical and dialectical philosophical approach to examining values, but she also seeks to show how theoretical and practical issues are interconnected.

An important addition to the field of music education, Values and Music Education highlights values that have been forgotten or marginalized, underscores those that seem perennial, and illustrates how values can be double-edged swords.

Reviews

"No contemporary philosopher of the arts and education can write with the depth of insight and the breadth of vision that Estelle R. Jorgensen can, as achieved in Values and Music Education."—Randall Everett Allsup, author of Remixing the Classroom

"There are few scholars taking an iterative approach to their work, circling back to the primary ideas with greater depth, focus, and with the insight provided by time spent in the process of inquiry. . . . This is an approach that renders the manuscript both accessible and meaningful to music teachers who work daily with young people in classrooms and rehearsal halls."—Patrick K. Freer, author of TIPS: The First Weeks of Middle School Chorus
