Reply To: Global music education in the 21st century


Sddogg, I really appreciate your comment. In general, the question of authenticity in the music classroom is one that we should continue to explore as a profession. I also find it important to tap into the cultures represented in our schools and let the students themselves share practices that may be more authentic. “Community Music” by Lee Higgins is another valuable text that explores some of these ideas and provides a framework for developing a conscious music making community.
