A philosophy of music education by Bennett Reimer( Book )

28 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: This text advances the philosophy of its previous editions into new territory, recasting it in light of emerging ideas and interests in philosophy in general and in philosophy of music in particular. The foundational concept--that the values of music are gained through direct experiences with its meaningful sounds--remains intact, but is explained and applied in broader, more inclusive scope, with a synergistic philosophical stance as the basis
The Arts, education, and aesthetic knowing( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Should arts education have a more significant place in our schools? An emphatic 'Yes' comes from the editors and other contributors to this provocative volume." "They build their case by drawing upon recent developments in cognitive theory and, in particular, upon contemporary thought regarding aesthetic knowing. They contend that aesthetic knowing constitutes a 'special mode of cognition' and they see aesthetic learning as vital to intellectual growth and development. They argue that the arts should 'constitute a foundational school subject.'" "An opening chapter reviews past practices in education in the arts, thus providing a needed historical context within which current thinking about aesthetic learning can be viewed. The following chapters elaborate on the idea and value of aesthetic knowing from various perspectives to buttress the case for its importance in education." "Developmental issues are explored to deepen understanding of the nature of aesthetic growth. Studies reveal that children's art products have not changed over the years. But how has a cognitive perspective changed the way in which child art is interpreted? Can phases in general aesthetic development be identified? Or are such phases specific to each art form?" "What pedagogical issues arise in education in the arts? How are conceptual learnings important to the development of aesthetic understanding? Does the study of fine arts enrich the quality of life and shape human personality in positive ways?" "Given the long history of arts education as a peripheral matter in schools, is it now possible to envision a greater recognition of what study of the arts can accomplish by a proper focus on aesthetic knowing?" "These are some of the questions addressed in a volume that provides stimulating reading not only for arts educators but for all who are genuinely concerned about education."--Jacket

Development and trial in a junior and senior high school of a two-year curriculum in general music by Bennett Reimer( Book )

7 editions published between 1967 and 1985 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research produced and tried a syllabus for junior and senior high school general music classes. The course is based on (1) a study of the current status of such classes and suggestions for improving them, (2) a particular aesthetic position about the nature and value of music and the means for realizing music's value, (3) relevant principles of course construction and pedagogy from the curriculum reform movement in american education, and (4) combining the above points in an attempt to satisfy the requirements of present needs, a consistent and well-accepted philosophical position, and current thought about educational strategy. The major objective of the course is to develop the ability to have aesthetic experiences of music. Such experiences are considered to contain two essential behaviors--aesthetic perception and aesthetic reaction. The course materials are designed to systematically improve the ability to perceive the aesthetic content of music, in a context which encourages feelingful reaction to the perceived aesthetic content. The basic components of the course are (1) verbal material about music's aesthetic nature and structure, (2) activities which make tangible the conceptions in the material, and (3) listenings which illustrate the nature of music and which foster keener musical perception and deeper musical reaction. The basic method is a constant movement from synthesis to analysis to synthesis. The major conception of the course--that music is a means for exploring and understanding human feeling--recurs throughout the material in progessively more sophisticated settings. (The course syllabus and instructions for using it comprise the major part of this document.) (Author)
