Summary

This introduction to the history and philosophy of music education provides an overview that is relevant for both students and working educators. Concentrating on the period from the 1950s to the present, Michael Mark describes and interprets the radical changes that have shaped current music education. Contemporary Music Education contains detailed discussion of practical and philosophical foundations, including the influence of the Contemporary Music Project, the Yale Seminar, the Juilliard Repertory project, and the Tanglewood Symposium. Current teaching alternatives treated include the Orff, Kodaly, and Suzuki approaches. Contemporary Music Education combines a thoughtful evaluation of the past with a realistic assessment of the present and future. It provides readers with a reasoned account of the purpose of music in education, the growth and achievements of music education as a profession, and the directions in which it is moving. The Third Edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to cover recent developments and current concerns in the field.
