Sociological Reflections on Methods in School Music.
Roberts, Brian A.
Written from a sociology of education perspective, this article seeks to answer four questions about teaching methods in music education: (1) to what extent music teachers view the formulation of their method of teaching as a type of content, rather than simply a strategy for the delivery of knowledge; (2) whether the content selected for schools is appropriate for today's students; (3) What is the nature of conscious or unconscious decisionmaking? and (4) How is music education "socially-distributed"? and What importance does this play in the selection of musical knowledge? An 18-item list of references is included. (DB)
