Crossing the Boundary from Music outside to inside of School: Contemporary Pedagogical Challenges
Wallerstedt, Cecilia; Lindgren, Monica
British Journal of Music Education, v33 n2 p191-203 Jul 2016
Music education in formal settings has the last decades been characterised by informal methods borrowed from outside school. In this study we analyse situations in Swedish secondary school where pupils' experience of music outside school becomes visible in music class. Pedagogical challenges in these situations are identified that concern how to (i) coordinate perspectives on music in classrooms when arenas for learning music is increasing in number; (ii) make space for new musical movements in school; and (iii) consider the situated nature of learning that complicates the transfer from musical experiences outside to inside school.
