Cover for JORGENSEN: In Search of Music Education

In Search of Music Education

What is music education, and what ought it to be? By challenging narrow and inadequate conceptions of the field, Estelle Jorgensen raises the possibility of alternative views that can dignify the teacher's task, enrich and enliven the profession, and validate an exciting range of additional ways in which music education can be undertaken in the contemporary world.

One of the most respected leaders in music education, Jorgensen emphasizes world music and ethnomusicology as equal partners alongside the more conventional sounds and styles that have dominated the classroom. Exemplifying sound scholarship, thorough research, and compelling argument, In Search of Music Education will be especially welcome wherever teachers strive to deal with requirements for responsible music education.


"Provocative and extremely stimulating. This work secures Jorgensen's position in the elite league of the few who truly challenge problems facing music education."--Patricia Shehan Campbell, author of Lessons from the World: A Cross-Cultural Guide to Music Teaching and Learning


Estelle R. Jorgensen, a professor of music at Indiana University, Bloomington, is the editor of Philosopher, Teacher, Musician: Perspectives on Music Education.
