The Role of Music in Education: Forming Cultural Identity and Making Cross-Cultural Connections
Pascale, Louise M.
Harvard Educational Review, v83 n1 p127-134 Spr 2013
In this reflection, Louise Pascale describes the evolution, development, and outcomes of the Afghan Children's Songbook Project, which is reintroducing children's ethnic songs to the children of Afghanistan and Afghan expats as well as to American schoolchildren. Her reflection highlights the potential for music to unify and strengthen community, thus joining people together in a common experience. She explores the suppression and resurgence of musical culture in Afghanistan and the connection of this experience to music education in schools in the United States.
