Musicking in a West Bank Conservatory: Toward a Sociological Framework
Frierson-Campbell, Carol
Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, v15 n3 p132-150 Jun 2016
The purpose of this paper is to share the evolution of a sociological framework to investigate the experience of teaching and learning music in relation to the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music in the occupied Palestinian territories. The primary foundation of the framework is Christopher Small's (1998) theory of musicking, supported by the concept of third place from urban sociologist Ray Oldenburg (1999) and the reconceptualization of music education as cultural practice suggested by educational researcher Rubén Gaztambide-Fernández (2007, 2011). Preliminary findings suggest that Small's theory is particularly apt because of its focus on ideal relationships between infinite combinations of people, places, and sounds. [This paper was presented at the 9th International Symposium on the Sociology of Music Education (2015).]
