Foundations of music education by Harold F Abeles( Book )

Comprehensive, balanced, and up to date, this thoroughly revised second edition of Foundations of Music Education focuses on the fundamental issues that will affect the teaching and learning of music in the coming years. This edition incorporates the many events and trends of the last decade that have affected music education and education in general. This carefully organized text explores the relationship between theory and practice in music teaching. From a comprehensive survey of the history, philosophy, and functions of music education to its social, psychological, and pedagogical aspects, the book presents the ideas that affect the teaching of music in any setting. The authors clearly explain the distinguishing features of leading schools of thought, interpret research findings, and critically examine the assumptions that underlie various approaches to curriculum and instruction. Unique to this book are chapters that link current ideas in psychology, sociology, and social psychology to music education. How do social class, race, and other characteristics influence the responses of students to different types of music? How do cognitive and behavioral psychologists differ in their views of learning? In what ways do small-group interactions in the classroom affect the emergence of musical talent? These and many other issues are addressed here. Indeed, Foundations of Music Education is notable for the attention it pays to trends in related fields of learning and the care with which such information is applied to contemporary music education. Included among its topics are attitude formation, creativity, cognitive processing, and behavioral techniques. More practical topics are also given equal coverage: curriculum development, cultural pluralism, music for handicapped children, program evaluation, innovative approaches in assessment, accountability, critical thinking, computer-based instruction, and technology in music. A chapter on research in music education presents an analysis of a published article on practice conditions and performance accuracy, placing the basics of the scientific method at the student's disposal. The final chapter on teaching as a profession examines the emerging agenda for music educators in the 1990s and beyond. Each chapter ends with a concise summary, several study and discussion questions for class and individual use, suggested class activities for putting theory into practice, suggested additional readings, and complete bibliographic references
