Songs in their heads : music and its meaning in children's lives by Patricia Shehan Campbell( Book )

25 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 907 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the musical interest and needs of children in their daily lives. Based upon their expressed thoughts and actual "musicking" behaviors, this text examines the songs they sing, the rhythms they make, and the roles that music plays for them. Blending standard education field experiences with ethnographic techniques, Dr. Campbell demonstrates how music is personally and socially meaningful to children and what values they place on particular musical styles, songs, and functions. She explores musical behaviors in various contextual settings, and presents in notated and narrative forms some of the "songs in their heads," balancing music learned with music "made," and intentional, purposeful music with natural musical behavior. Songs in Their Heads is a vivid and engaging book that bridges the disciplines of music education, musicology, ethnomusicology, and folklore. Designed as a text or supplemental text in a variety of music education method courses, as well as a reference for music specialists and classroom teachers, this book will also appeal to parents interested in understanding and enhancing music making in their children

Multicultural perspectives in music education by William M Anderson( Book )

14 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The content of music programs in U.S. schools historically has been associated with the art and traditional music of western Europe. The k-12 music curriculum has seldom reflected the ethnic diversity of U.S. society. The Music Educators National Conference maintains that school music must be more broadly defined to encompass this ethnic diversity. The principal aim of this book is to provide a pragmatic approach to the integration of world music traditions in general music classes, particularly at the upper elementary, middle school, and high school levels. Chapter 1, "Teaching Music from a Multicultural Perspective" (W. Anderson, P. Campbell) is an introducation to the rationale and teaching approaches presented throughout the book. The following eight chapters offer lesson plans, complete with music, as well as background information and extensive bibliographies, discographies, and filmographies. The eight chapters are: (1) "North America" (E. McCullough-Brabson, and others); (2) "Latin American and the Caribbean" (D. Olson, S. Ahyoung); (3) "Europe" (P. Campbell); (4) "Sub-Saharan Africa" (B. Lundquist); (5) "The Middle East" (G. Sawa); (6) "South Asia: India" (W. Anderson); (7) "East Asia" (Han, k-h, and others); and (8) "Southeast Asia" (P. Campbell, W. Anderson). A glossary index, and numerous black and white photographs and illustrations are included. (Jb)

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Redefining Music Studies in an Age of Change: Creativity, Diversity, Integration takes prevailing discourse about change in music studies to new vistas, as higher education institutions are at a critical moment of determining just what professional musicians and teachers need to survive and thrive in public life. The authors examine how music studies might be redefined through the lenses of creativity, diversity, and integration. which are the three pillars of the recent report of The College Music Society taskforce calling for reform. Focus is on new conceptions for existent areas--such as studio lessons and ensembles, academic history and theory, theory and culture courses, and music education coursework--but also on an exploration of music and human learning, and an understanding of how organizational change happens. Examination of progressive programs will celebrate strides in the direction of the task force vision, as well as extend a critical eye distinguishing between premature proclamations of "mission accomplished" and genuine transformation. The overarching theme is that a foundational, systemic overhaul has the capacity to entirely revitalize the European classical tradition. Practical steps applicable to wide-ranging institutions are considered--from small liberal arts colleges, to conservatory programs, large research universities, and regional state universities"--The publisher
