Book Description

World Music Pedagogy, Volume II: Elementary Music Education delves into the theory and practices of World Music Pedagogy with children in grades 1-6 (ages 6-12). It specifically addresses how World Music Pedagogy applies to the characteristic learning needs of elementary school children: this stage of a child’s development—when minds are opening up to broader perspectives on the world—presents opportunities to develop meaningful multicultural understanding alongside musical knowledge and skills that can last a lifetime.

This book is not simply a collection of case studies but rather one that offers theory and practical ideas for teaching world music to children. Classroom scenarios, along with teaching and learning experiences, are presented within the frame of World Music Pedagogy. Ethnomusicological issues of authenticity, representation, and context are addressed and illustrated, supporting the ultimate goal of helping children better understand their world through music.
