Sustaining Cultures in the Music Classroom
Liu, Chiao-Wei
General Music Today, v33 n3 p58-60 Apr 2020
Cultural diversity is not a new concept in the field of music education. Yet minoritized groups continue to face systematic discrimination. Given the shifting cultural realities, how we as music teachers move beyond recognizing diversity but sustain the various cultural and linguistic ways of being of our students becomes a crucial question. I explore the concept, culturally sustaining pedagogy, as coined by H. Samy Alim and Django Paris and offer some pedagogical approaches for music teachers to consider in this column.
